The Mid-Antrim Museum at The Braid features galleries showcasing an impressive collection of fascinating artefacts of both local and national significance, alongside an exciting range of changing exhibitions. The use of interactive media brings history to life - as visitors are enticed to step back in time in a multi-sensory experience - while adjoining displays of artefacts are complimented by dramatic images of the local landscape. Together they provide an all-encompassing evocative experience. The Museum features a varied range of events and exhibitions throughout the year. Also on offer are curriculum-linked programmes focusing on early man in Ireland, the Victorians and the Second World War. These interactive sessions provide engaging and enjoyable experiences for children, bring history to life in a memorable way.
