Exhibition

Northern Ireland: Living with the Troubles

22 March - 29 September 2024
Free to all

Explore the 30-year conflict in Northern Ireland through diverse perspectives in an enlightening exhibition

Northern Ireland’s Troubles are explored in a thought-provoking exhibition. This contentious period, rooted in centuries-old tensions, culminated in a fragile ceasefire in 1998. The exhibition invites visitors to consider the Troubles through diverse perspectives, with key sections focusing on events such as the night of June 27-28, 1970, the descent into violence, 'Hell in a Wee Place,' as well as the situation today.

Emphasising the lack of a single agreed narrative, the exhibition features personal voices, diverse experiences and objects to illuminate the complexities. A glossary is provided to aid visitors in understanding the intricacies of this multi-faceted conflict.
