Welcome to Carrickfergus Museum

Did you know that Carrickfergus is one of the most archaeologically explored towns in Northern Ireland?

The finds on display at Carrickfergus Museum provide a remarkable glimpse into life in the town from the Medieval period to more recent times.

The displays reflect the experiences of ordinary people and illustrate the dramatic and tumultuous events in the town's history.

These collections are displayed and interpreted using a range of media, including audio-visual presentations and hands-on interactives.

Our current opening hours are:

Monday – Saturday, 10am – 4pm

Free admission!
