“An Inspiring Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Words fail me to adequately describe the excellent exhibits at the
museum. My 11 year old grandson was with me and he was equally enthralled especially at the nature section. The restaurant was also excellent.

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.
