Ballymoney Museum has reopened to the public following a period of major refurbishment funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The exhibition galleries include everything from Mesolithic archaeology to motorcycle road racing. On display are rare finds from the Bronze Age and Medieval period as well as exhibits associated with the political upheaval of the late 18th century and the United Irish Rebellion. The museum's collection of motorcycle road racing artefacts and memorabilia, celebrating local heroes, is a must see. The museum also features an innovative public information area, which is an essential resource for genealogists, students and local people.
