“A fabulous day out in the city”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

I keep going back as the displays change and you always find something new. Visitors love that it is in the middle of the City and you can also take in the Botanic Gardens

“Whats not to like”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

A free exhibition over many floors, explaining Ulster politics, life, landscape, plus animal, ancient Eygpt and art displays.
Parking restricted, generally use the side streets close by.

“Worth Visiting”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

The museum has recently undergone a big renovation - it is easy to view with exhibits clearly signposted - has many special events throughout the year. It is situated in the Botanic Gardens which are themselves well worth a visit especially the original glass house where plants from all over the world can be admired. Great day out for all ages.

Very Interesting and well displayed Museum. Start at the top and work down the floors to the ground floor.
