A souvenir edition explorer map (and stickers) are available for free from the Welcome Area to help you and the kids get the most out of your visit. With fascinating ancient relics to hands on activities, the museum offers something for everyone, from the simply curious to the enthusiast.
Ulster Museum, as Northern Ireland's treasure house of the past and present, is home to a rich collection of art, history and natural sciences. There are a number of permanent displays to explore, plus a lively programme of changing exhibitions and events throughout the year.
