The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum in Northern Ireland is one of the four National Museums of Northern Ireland that comprise this informative website. Visitors will find the "Collections" at the Folk & Transport Museum are on numerous topics including "agriculture", "crafts and trade", "picture library", "buildings", and "archives" and help visitors "discover town and countryside with cottages, farms, schools and shops." The "archives" section includes a "sound archive" which is a BBC archive of film, radio, and television programs. This section also includes the "living linen archive", which is an oral history project that documents the lives of those in the linen industry. The "buildings" collection offers photos and interesting tidbits on over two dozen historically significant buildings in Ballycultra, that were moved from their original locations. There are examples (such as the "Ballyvollen Houses") that indicate English settlers built them, because of the building techniques. Visitors who click on "Rural Buildings" will find the Tulylish Bleach Tower interesting, as it provided shelter for a watchman to watch over long webs of linen that were in the process of being bleached in the sunlight.
