IRISH LINEN CENTRE AND LISBURN MUSEUM
The Irish Linen Centre & Lisburn Museum is financed and managed by Lisburn City Council.
As a registered museum, its aim is to collect, safeguard and interpret artefacts and information relating to the Irish linen industry and the history of Lisburn and the Lagan Valley, making them accessible now and preserving them for the future.
Free Science Programme at Lisburn Museum!
From March to June 2014 the Museum is offering a range of FREE workshops to celebrate the British Science Association's National Science and Engineering week. Students can become scientists for the day, creating vinegar volcanoes, dyeing cabbages crazy colours, or concocting slippery slime. Our specially-designed workshops, which can be tailored to your needs, bring the excitement of science to life!
