Derryglad Folk Museum School Tours

Derryglad Folk Museum is an ideal destina­tion for School tours, Tour groups, Day Care Centres and many more.


For students, a visit to the museum is of great benefit in their study of our history, heritage and folk culture. See how your great grandparents made the butter washed the clothes and did the cooking. See how they lived and worked and were so self-sufficient.
