“art's next generation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We were there on Sunday and there was an exhibitionn of GCSE school art that was very good. There is a show of fine art on the uppermost level, this changes regularly. The museum is very impressive.

“Always interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

The Ulster Museum had a facelift a few years ago and it is really nice to visit. there are many different sections including industrial history, ancient Ireland, natural history and great art galleries. To this they have addes a super new cafe/restaurant and outside there is the venerable Palm House in the Botanic Gardens and famous Tropical Ravine. Just fabulous.

“Fab”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Great day out. Took our 4 year old and he loved it. Staff really friendly and happy to speak to you. Loads of interaction and plenty of stuff to see and do.

Absolutely no negatives at all, and for someone as difficult as me to please, thats about as good as it gets !
