NI Music Exhibition Reopening!

Please note: We will be closed on Monday 30th August 2021.

Oh Yeah Music Centre is delighted to announce that we will be proceeding with the next phase of our reopening plans on Monday 23rd August.

The award winning NI Music Exhibition at Oh Yeah will once again be open for visitors after being shut for almost 18 months due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. 

We’ve made some changes to your visiting experience in to make your visit is as safe and enjoyable as possible. All the relevant info follows below. 

The NI Music exhibition at Oh Yeah is the only permanent exhibit for popular music in Northern Ireland. There is much to see, including a series of storyboards documenting and plotting the history and the stories of Folk, Punk, Rock, Jazz and more. There is a ‘Legends’ series of wall displays that hail the great achievers including Ruby Murray, Van Morrison, Terri Hooley, Bap Kennedy, David McWilliams and Henry McCullough to name a few. Exhibition cases display some unique rock and roll memorabilia including the Fender Guitar that Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol used to write ‘Run’ and ‘Chasing Cars’, a vintage street sign of Cyprus Avenue, made famous in a Van Morrison song, and a specially arranged exhibit of Gary Moore memorabilia. 

Earlier this year with support from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and in preparation for the reopening we put together a short film about the exhibition, the music story and our music bus tour. You can watch it below, then come visit the real thing!

Please see below for full details of the processes we’ve put in place. We have undertaken full risk assessments and our staff and volunteers have been briefed and trained on procedures.
