This would have been a five star rating if it hadn't been for the slightly run down De-Loreon on show. For such a locally iconic car they should have had a better version. What made the day were the rest of the exhibits and the...More

Didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised and loved the full experience. Unfortunately due to time we were unable to see much of the transport museum. This is a full day out I'm planning on going again next time I'm in Belfast.

The grounds around the folk park are beautiful, particularly in autumn. The staff were very friendly and happy to pass on information. Walking around one thing which struck us was the difficulty in working out what buildings were . Similar museums in America have clear...More

Nice day out, plenty to see. Not many staff around and not great customer service. Some interesting exhibits. Very good toilets facilities throughout the park but only one place to eat or drink. Good value for money. I think more attention to detail needed, around...More

Good evening, is it possible to buy tickets on line please as I cannot see this on your website. I am hoping to visit on Sun 3rd May and as this is a BH weekend, I am concerned that we may have to queue for ages from 10am when you open. We have to leave by 2 to catch a flight at Dublin so are limited in the time we would have to spend and would probably only have time for the transport museum. Many thanks,
