• Putting Bangor on the Map

    North Down Museum has the only complete Folio of Plantation Maps in Ireland, the Raven Maps. These have been digitised and you can see the digitised maps with their additional content and the originals in our Plantation Room.

  • School Visits

    We welcome hundreds of school children to the Museum every year. Bring your class and learn about local Viking history.

  • A Unique Space

    Escape to North Down Museum for some time out and enjoy a coffee in our historic courtyard. Our coffee shop, under the management of Coffee Cure, serves a range of barista-brewed coffee, light snacks and hot and cold lunches.

  • A Snapshot of the Past

    One of our most popular collections is our local photographic archive, providing a visual insight into Bangor’s past.
