Ulster Folk and Transport Museum a priceless asset

Editor's Viewpoint

For half-a-century the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum has created a timeless snapshot of life in this corner of western Europe.

From old hill farm buildings, the way previous generations dressed and their social lives, to what they drove and the precious paper, sound and film archives, the museum is a priceless asset which is sometimes not given its proper recognition.

It has helped to educate, inform and entertain generations of people through skilful curating and innovative methods of communication. The everyday life of Northern Ireland over the years is fascinating and as the pace of change increases the museum is there to chronicle it.

Many happy returns on its 50th birthday.
