IN PICTURES: Explore a century of life in Lisburn

To mark 100 years of Northern Ireland, Lisburn museum has unveiled a new exhibition looking back on the last century in Lisburn.

Monday, 15th November 2021, 10:03 am

From the official opening of the Northern Ireland Parliament, through the impact of two world wars, examining the industrial, retail and leisure life of the city, right up to current Covid pandemic and even featuring Lisburn boxer Kurt Walker, who recently fought in the Olympic Games, the museum has chosen 100 photos to represent 100 years.

The exhibition is generously supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund’s Shared History, an initiative setup to mark the Centenary of the establishment of Northern Ireland in 1921.

The museum is also keen to hear from local people, urging them to share their thoughts on what may have been left out of the story of Lisburn and what should be captured for visitors 100 years from now.

Share a thought or photograph with the museum by emailing [email protected], or tag the museum on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Google. For full details on how to submit you thought or photograph, visit
