    This museum constitutes the largest transport collection in Ireland, housing everything from carriages to cars to fighter planes, as well as the definitive exhibition on the Titanic. The second half of this museum is an open plan village from about a 100 years ago. Discover how a small rural community in Ulster survived, interacted, educated children and worshiped God. Some cottages evoke nostalgia, especially when you see the delicately carved cribs and the beautiful quilts; others are bare and cramped. This is a world rendered with loving care and attention to detail. The museum opening times change seasonally.
