Journey between worlds at Ulster American Folk Park, an open-air museum designed to explore the historical link between Ulster and America. The museum sheds a light on the experiences of nearly 2 million immigrants who sailed from Ulster to America between 1700 and 1900. The site is divided into two sections (Old and New World) and uses volunteers dressed in period costume to demonstrate techniques and skills used by immigrants on a daily basis, including cooking, embroidery, spinning, printing, and bread making. The park also contains the renowned Center for Migration Studies, which houses a library of over 10,000 books, maps, photographs, and periodicals. Check online for a detailed list of the museum’s upcoming festivals and exhibitions. Put Ulster American Folk Park into our Omagh trip planning site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Brilliant day out. Every member of staff was friendly and engaging. Those dressed up had no problem answering questions and telling the story about the building they were in. It was a very wet day but this added to the theme of the park and it all felt a bit more real. The photographic emporium was fantastic fun.
Excellent place to go..full of local history and history from across the Atlantic..well laid out and easy to follow. The houses contain live displays which give you an authentic feel to how people lived and survived. Stories of local people are followed through with their emigration to American and how they got on in the USA
