About Us


North Down Museum packs a lot into a small space, telling the history of the area from the Bronze Age to the present day. You can find us at the rear of the Town Hall, Bangor Castle, situated within the laundry and stables of the Castle, built for the Hon. Robert Edward Ward in 1852.

Take some time to look around our website and learn more about our collections, events and exhibitions - we hope to welcome you on a visit soon!
