Historic Linen Village Museum at Sion Stables 2024

The village is of international significance. The museum is housed within the period horse stalls which were fabricated in the late 19th century by Musgraves of Belfast. The exhibitions bring alive the stories of the mill-owners, the mill-workers and the production of Irish Linen. Take time to marvel at the sample of the first flax spun in the mill on 15th November 1835 or explore the extensive collection of linen including the famous William & Mary tablecloth. Learn about lesser known uses of linen such as its use in aeroplane wings during WW1.
