Museum at The Mill

Museum at The Mill invites visitors of all ages to explore the history and learn about the heritage of Mossley Mill, a flax spinning mill in County Antrim which dates back to the early 1800s.


Housed within what was originally the wet spinning floor, the museum tells the story of Mossley Mill and the people who worked there from the 1800s through to the mill closure in 1995. The history is presented through a range of interpretative displays including artefacts, images and archival film.


The museum also features the development of the mill in recent years as council headquarters, cultural centre and important site for natural heritage and biodiversity.

By Lise McGreevy - Photojournalist & Visual Artist

Lise attended the WW1 Centenary Remembrance Service at the City Hall on the 4th August, which was organised by the Northern Ireland First World War Centenary Committee and Belfast city councillors.

It was a very moving and touching ceremony, where hundreds of members of the public turned up to participate in remembering the fallen on this momentous occasion. As a people photographer, Lise decided to stay behind the scenes at the event, taking images of people at ground level who were working at the city hall that special day or had given up their time to come and pay their respects and commemorate.

Lise’s work will be displayed in Museum at The Mill until Saturday 27 September 2014.
