Exhibition Poster

40 years of Collecting is an exhibition from the Irish Linen Centre & Lisburn Museum.  The exhibition opened in October 2019, and its successful run in the Museum was cut short by the Covid-19 Pandemic. But, just because the Museum is closed it does not mean you cannot enjoy this fabulous display. Check out the virtual tour of the exhibition above, and share your thoughts with us.
