Warp back in time and enjoy an unforgettable experience at the Irish Linen Centre & Lisburn Museum.

Visitors can explore Ireland’s industrial heritage in their award-winning exhibition ‘Flax to Fabric: the Story of Irish Linen’. Through live spinning and weaving demonstrations, expert guides tell the rich history of linen production in Ulster, from the earliest times to the present. Irish linen was famous worldwide and visitors can admire fine samples of Coulson’s damask or designs by Sybil Connolly, whose dresses were worn by Jackie Kennedy and Queen Elizabeth II. See a selection of linen christening robes, cloth woven for Queen Victoria, and wares from the world-renowned fashion retailer Robinson & Cleaver.
