Although the Ulster Museum has been recently refurbished, the exhibits and displays are basically the same as they've always been. Visit worthwhile if it's raining ...

Museum is very well laid out and has a wealth of things to do and see. Next to Botanic gardens too, a bonus ideal for a picnic. Do not miss a visit if in Belfast, woukd say suitable for all ages

Great selection of food which all looks tempting! & service is quick via the self service buffet. Great views of botanic gardens on offer which also provides ample space to walk off the cake and kids to expend some energy. Love this place!
