North Down Museum

Discover the area’s fascinating history in Northern Ireland’s most visited small museum, located amid the wooded nature trails of Castle Park in Bangor.

The displays reflect the pivotal role nearby Bangor Abbey held in early
Christian Ireland and throughout Europe. Discover how the monks met
their fate at the hands of the Vikings and visitor’s will love the 
full-size Monk’s Cell and Viking Long-house. Nostalgic displays on
Bangor’s early days as a resort, plus a mini cinema combine with
temporary  exhibitions to make this a ‘must’ for all ages.

Garden restaurant. The museum shop offers a range of books and gifts
from the area.
