indicates offers with National Art Pass
Newry and Mourne Museum is housed in a restored 16th-century fortified house and an attached 19th-century warehouse.
Permanent exhibitions trace the social and political history of the area from the prehistoric period up to the early 21st century and artefacts highlight the arts, trade, industry and the region's maritime heritage. Displays explore the impact of national and international political events on Newry and Mourne in the 20th century.
Look out for The Wild Escape at museums and galleries in the next few months. Many have special events, or you can use our audio introduction to help children get involved at any cultural venue.
Visiting with children?
Use our audio introduction to inspire a visit to any museum, gallery or historic house local to you. Then, just send us your child’s animal artwork when it's finished and we'll add it to the epic collective artwork that launches on Earth Day 2023.
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
