Culture Lab Virtual Exhibition

CultureLab is a place to take a good, hard look at the cultural stereotypes that we all know surround us here in Northern Ireland. There’s no point in pretending they will disappear overnight so best to look them in the eye. 

Look into the lab and explore our virtual exhibition…







Who are we? Put our past under the microscope. When we look into our own past we can discover some surprising things about the symbols, identities and prejudices that have shaped our past and our present.







Who are you? Irish or British, Aitch or Haitch, Saint or Sinner? Same Difference. 

With 110% accuracy, our quiz will calculate how Protestant or Catholic you are (in the world of Derry Girls).







We’re not all that different, are we?

The Derry Girls differences blackboard says something about us from a different time. But we have more in common than divides us, don't we?

Take a look. Don’t Believe the Stereotype.

CultureLab will be back for you to experiment in person once the Ulster Museum reopens. Check back here for updates. 

CultureLab is part of Making the Future, a cross border cultural heritage programme from National Museums NI, Nerve Centre, Public Record Office of Northern Ireland and Linen Hall Library, funded through the PEACE IV programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
