Larne Museum

The museum reflects Larne's archaeological, industrial and natural heritage

Larne Museum is a local Authority museum managed by Larne Borough Council. The museum houses a mixed local history collection that has been assembled largely through the donations of local people. The collection reflects the rich archeological, industrial and natural heritage of the Borough of Larne.

This area enjoys a uniquely beautiful location in the Antrim hills, glens and coastline where man has changed the landscape from pre-historic times to the present. The legacy of this heritage is reflected everywhere in the Borough, in archeologically sites ­ standing stones, forts and castles - in its settlement pattern of town, village and farm, and in its strong links with the sea.

From 1971 the collection has been developed through a partnership between Larne and District Historical Society and Larne Borough Council and is now at an exciting stage when proposed development will enhance the services offered. The museum provides a focus for both residents and visitors who wish to learn more about the area.

The museum is located in the former Carnegie Free Library, a building of historic interest. For further information on the museum service in Larne, please contact:
