Milford House Museum isn't just a museum in Northern Ireland, Milford House Museum is a story of a journey, a journey of dedication, hard work and total commitment. This commitment has been a lifelong endeavour for the museums curator Stephen McManus. Stephen has dedicated at least half of his life to this house and it's future story lies solely in the hands of this totally dedicated guy. There is so much too see here and I just loved the fact that no matter how small an artefact, the artefact comes with a truly huge story. I could literally go on for hours talking about this place and in just 150 words that would truly be impossible. But I will go as far as too say that Milford House Museum is one of Northern Ireland's biggest & brightest hidden gems and I would truly recommend you visit here.
