Our vision is to enrich people’s understanding of the contribution of the people of Northern Ireland in the Second World War. We do this by preserving and displaying a unique collection and making our museum collection the focus for learning in our workshops, events and publications.
Since 2016 the NIWM has been appealing to the public to contribute their memories of Northern Ireland during the Second World War to our oral history collection. Since launching the project, the museum has recorded over 100 stories which are now stored within the collection and made available to researchers by appointment.
In 2020 we will continue to add stories to our oral history collection with The War and Me Oral History project which is coordinated by Michael Burns. If you, a friend or family member have wartime memories, please get in touch with Michael to organise an interview. We would love to add your story to our growing collection.
