Planes, trains and automobiles and much, much more. Transport connects us all.

The Ulster Transport Museum’s collection reveals how people have travelled by land, sea and sky - for work and for pleasure - both past and present.

It is a story that takes you from the ill-fated voyage of the Titanic, to the short-lived industrial adventure of the De Lorean sports car. Two global icons, both built in Belfast.

Our diverse collections reveal stories of remarkable innovation and achievement. Harry Ferguson, spans both sky and land. A local pioneer of aviation whose famous tractor changed global food production for ever.

Transport is part of the fabric of society and other dimensions to our story are reflected on our Co-Op milk float and Belfast Telegraph delivery lorry.

The Irish Railway collection is unique on the island and must be seen to be truly appreciated.

For the serious enthusiast, our rich archival collections provide additional opportunities to delve even deeper!
