“A New Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

The refurbished Museum is absolutely fantastic. All sorts of exibitions to excite visitors. My grandson was completely gobsmacked by it all and recently asked to go back. We plan Easter.

“Love!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

I'm a sucker for museums. But, this one was really fantastic.
There are hands on activities on every floor, and it is actually a very interesting and well put-together museum.
I loved it and I think it is a must see when you're in Belfast.

“A great tribute to Belfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

There were some really splendid exhibits here, especially the street art. The section on the history of the troubles is as important as it is informative.
