The Causeway School Museum, situated beside the Giant’s Causeway, was built in 1915 and designed by the architect Clough Williams-Ellis of Portmeirion fame. Clough Williams-Ellis was employed by the MacNaghten family who instructed that the school be built in memory of Lord Edward MacNaghten. The school operated between 1915 and 1962 and then became derelict. The building was given in trust to the NEELB from the MacNaghten estate on the terms that it would be used for educational purposes. After extensive repairs it was opened as a living history experience and museum in 1987.
