Carrickfergus Museum

Carrickfergus is the most archaeologically explored town in Northern Ireland. The finds on display at Carrickfergus Museum provide a remarkable glimpse into life in the town from the Medieval period to more recent times.

The displays reflect the experiences of ordinary people and illustrate the dramatic and tumultuous events in the town’s history.

These collections are displayed and interpreted using a range of media, including audio-visual presentations and hands-on interactives.

Also featured is the Community Archive gallery that provides opportunities for the local community to contribute their memories, photographs and objects to the ever-evolving story of Carrickfergus.

The Gallery features special exhibitions produced by the museum, as well as touring exhibitions from other museums and institutions.

The Education and Community Room is used for curriculum-linked education programmes and for outreach work with the local community.

This medieval town rich in its history and traditions are really not aware of the advancements in the global economy. These education and community rooms should also educate the residents on the recent trends in the socio-economic sector. Thus they gain access to modern financial instruments and tools like the booming sensation of crypto trading.

Crypto trading has now become the easiest way to enhance wealth. The Top 10 Crypto Robots is the perfect place where one can find all the information on crypto currency trading. The website aims at clearing the confusion that exists regarding the crypto currency in the market. It explains in detail what each of the currency means and its origin in simple language. It also has links to the website that can be used to trade these currencies. They only make 100% genuine recommendations by laying down the pros and cons of each platform. It is up to the user to go through the exhaustive list and pick the right one to see his income grow manifold.
