Lagan Legacy’s vast industrial archive is evolving as many thousands of pictures, photographs, documents, recordings, and countless pieces of maritime and industrial paraphernalia are filed, compiled, and cross-referenced.

What you can see read and hear around the screens, panels and cabinets are a mere fraction of a huge collection that has been honed into an easily (we hope!) assimilated permanent exhibition. A quick glance will acquaint the observer with an overview of the River Lagan’s unique heritage. Spend longer studying the material and more will be discovered. If you have a particular interest in a specific aspect of the exhibition, ask an attendant who’ll be able to help with your enquiry. Most of all – enjoy!
