Moving image archive

Harland & Wolff #H 1721, Ulster Folk & Transport Museum collectionThe value of photographs as integral to the collections of the museum was accepted from the beginning of the museum's development and consequently, over the past forty plus years, the archive has evolved into probably the most significant local source of historical images from the 1860's to the present day.

Northern Ireland ScreenIn collaboration with Northern Ireland Screen the museum is an access point to the "Digital Film Archive" that provides, via a computer station, 70 hours of digitised moving images about Northern Ireland from 1897-2000.

In addition to sound recording, the museum now video records activity that we feel will be of long term historical value, or perhaps short term interest in relation to some current exhibitions. Some of this material is available to view on our YouTube channel.
