This is a beautiful building with a great self guided tour - and It's free. Very interesting history about Belfast. Includes were they've come from to were they are today - and their hopes for the future. The reflection room is not to be missed.

It is a nice building. I walked there from my hotel ( Botanic Rest Queen‘s Quarter; see other review ) in about 10 minutes.

Wonderful place to visit in Belfast! The interior is spectacular. The surrounding grounds are home to important exhibits as well.
