About

CultureLab is a place to take a good, hard look at the cultural stereotypes that we all know surround us in Northern Ireland. This new exhibition poses questions about culture and offers a glimpse into how identities have been, and continue to be, shaped in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The exhibition includes the famous ‘Differences’ blackboard from the hit TV series Derry Girls, which is on public display for the very first time. Inspired by this iconic prop, the museum will also display a new interactive installation that will test visitors’ preconceptions and challenge traditional stereotypes.

You can interact with the stories, hopes and aspirations of real people from across Northern Ireland and bordering counties, collected through the participants of ‘Making the Future’ engagement programmes.

CultureLab is part of Making the Future, a collaborative Peace IV project with National Museums NI, Nerve Centre, PRONI and Linen Hall Library.
