Whether you're a local to Northern Ireland or you're exploring it as a tourist - there's plenty of fascinating history to learn about!
Down County Museum has been around since restoration began on the building in 1981. The site used to be the County Gaol of Down, a prison that was in operation from 1796 until 1830.
The Museum's permanent exhibitions include Down Through Time which explores 9000 years of human history in County Down. It also offers a programme of temporary exhibitions that explore everything from the Victorians to local artists.
Entry is free so why not plan a fabulously free day out with all the family at this much-loved museum of local history?
