The Egyptian mummy has always excited kids but with the aid of modern technology and academic investigation there is so much more of her story brought to the visitor in a very interesting way. Lots of interesting stuff is... More

The visitor experience on the first floor is quite a good surprise and the shop and cafe are a delight. You also have the option of attending a theme night which are always... More

We visit the Ulster museum about once a year and it is always a very enjoyable experience. Each year they hold a different exhibition in the upstairs rooms , last year it was dinasaurs which our granddaughter really loved. a good restaurant and afterwards you can take a lovely walk through the Botanic Gardens .

The Ulster Museum is a very worthwhile place to visit as it is first set in the most beautiful botanic gardens with the palm house and tropical ravine close by, it is a modern building with easy access for the disabled and houses both a coffee shop/cafe and gift store. The exhibits are well set out and easy for all... More

Ws have been here on numerous occasions and each visit is so enjoyable. You can literally spend hours going round all the exhibits and there is loads to see. The highlight is the egyptian mummy. There is also a trail for the kids to find certain items of interest. The only downside is the parking. Basically there is none. Trying... More
