Sarah Smith, Museums Assistant & Audrey Cameron, On-Call Assistant launch the summer opening hours at the Whitehouse.

The Whitehouse has opened its doors for visitors and opening times until 30th September 2015 will be Saturday and Sunday 1-5pm. Admission will be free.

Speaking about the opening, Sarah Smith, Museums Assistant commented;

“The building has witnessed many historic scenes from the ships carrying King Williams’s armies to the Titanic sailing her maiden voyage and the Luftwaffe bombers using Belfast Lough as their gateway into the city.  This is an opportunity for members of the public to come along to our informative visitor centre and step back in time.  Through a range of colourful displays including artefacts, images and interactives you can now explore both the past and present of this unique historical site.  Visitors will also be able to enjoy afternoon tea and coffee.”

In March this year Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council took on the ownership and management of The White House from the White House Preservation Trust and it is now operated by the Arts and Culture Department.

The White House function room (maximum 50 people) may also be hired for events. Guided tours can also be arranged by appointment.
