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!

I'd go back in a heartbeat! I live in in a city with wonderful museums. This one is a treasure. Lovely museum, great location. Visited the exhibit: The Art of the Troubles. Finely curated. Diverse expressions.

We've been a few times to the Ulster Museum and really can't see how people complain. To start of with, it's free and almost nothing is free in Belfast! It's closed Monday's but is open on bank holiday Monday's which is brilliant. You wouldn't need an extensive amount of time in here especially with small children they may find it... More

Beautiful building, well laid out and interactive too. It also has a good cafe which has recently changed to a great local supplier so the food is good - a little expensive but fine as part of your day at the museum. Well worth a visit! Oh and it's free!

Didn't really know what to expect before going. Trip was well worth it. Have a diverse array of exhibits on a variety of topics - animals, atoms, art, environment, etcetera. Great for all ages and interest. With no admission fee, a great half a day in Belfast.

The art display gave an interesting view of the troubles in Northern Ireland through various art mediums....very intriquing. We didn't have a lot of extra time however to view the museum as a whole. Thought it was wonderful that it was FREE!
