On Wednesday the Mayor of Ballymoney opened a new exhibition at Ballymoney Museum. “The Project of Plantation” exhibition explores the changes that occurred in our local area in the early 17th century when new settlers arrived from England, Wales and Lowland Scotland.

“The Project of Plantation” exhibition engages with evidence that still exists in the local landscape, revealed by current archaeological research and excavation. The exhibition aims to challenge popular ideas about the important and contentious events of this period.

The Project of Plantation exhibition runs in Ballymoney Museum from the 22nd January to 22nd March, Monday to Thursday and Saturday 9am-5pm, Friday 9am-4.30pm. Entrance is free.

The Project of Plantation will also be open on the evenings of Thursday 20 February, Wednesday 19 March from 7.30 - 9.00pm in support of the series of talks on THE PLANTER AND THE GAEL, organised by Ballymoney Museum. A member of Causeway Museum Service will provide a tour of the exhibition and answer any questions.
