Our Mission Statement
The Irish Linen Centre & Lisburn Museum is financed and managed by Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council. We have a very clear mission statement:
The museum researches, collects, conserves, interprets and exhibits the history and heritage of Lisburn and Castlereagh district, Lisburn, the Lagan Valley and the local, national and global significance of the Irish Linen Industry in the 19th and 20th century.
The museum service actively engages with our visitors and communities, to deliver a varied programme of exhibitions, activities and events to present opportunities for ‘education, enjoyment, reflection and knowledge sharing’.
