  • It was a real interesting visit. We were giving a chance to spin some linen yarn, see how jacquard cards were punched to create a damask pattern and how the weaving machine worked. It was furthermore put into the economic context of Ireland in these times, our host being a really knowledgeable historian and answering patiently to all our questions. If you visit Belfast, take some time to visit the Linen museum in Lisburn. It is easy to reach by train. However, if one is not fluent in English, the experience will be diminished as there are no written explanation in any languages.
  • It a great museum and all staff were friendly and informative . Small gift shop as soon as you enter and different levels offer different viewpoints through time. Also there is a kids area if you are taking little ones. Very little parking out front so I suggest going to the car park about 4 mins walking distance away.
