About Us

The Belfast Historical Society & Museum celebrates and preserves the city's rich and varied history through exhibits, community programs, research, and publications that educate the public. Learn about Belfast's maritime heritage, our industrial past, notable people, its role in the Civil War, and about life in the city over two centuries.

The museum is located at 10 Market Street, opposite the new Waldo Judicial Center. We will be practicing safe social distancing and masks will be required. We will have hand sanitizer and extra masks if needed and will post our guidelines as you enter the building. We look forward to seeing old friends and greeting new ones.
