Orange Order museums project

There is an  article in the current issue of Museums Journal about the plans by the Orange Order to open two museums.  The £4m project comprises interpretive centres at its headquarters, Schomberg House, in Belfast and at Sloan's House in Loughgall, county Armagh.  This is an excellent project which can do much to increase understanding of the Orange tradition and contribute to a shared and better future in Ulster.  The project was launched in Schomberg House back in December.

  1. Hello,
    Orange lodges in Manchester, England are excited to hear about the Orange Museums project in Northern Ireland. Orange museums that promote the learning and understanding about Orange cultural heritage are long overdue.
    The Orange Institution in England was founded in Manchester in 1807. We are hoping to eventually develop a similar Orange Order museums project in Central Manchester. Check out our new website here - www.manchesterorange.co.uk
    Fraternal regards,
    Manchester Orange
