From Trams to Trolleybuses
History of Transport in Belfast
The motor car has revolutionised how we travel. What began as an experimental machine in the late 19th century, developed into the most popular form of transport on our roads. Our road gallery displays some of the earliest made cars in our collection such as the MMC built in 1903 and the Ford Model T from 1911.
Discover how cars changed in shape and style throughout the 20th century with a few surprises along the way, such as the locally made Nobel bubble car and the 1967 Amphicar which travelled across the water from Scotland to Ballycastle in 1968!
