Owner description: Come face to face with dinosaurs, meet an ancient Egyptian mummy and see modern masterpieces with a visit to the Ulster Museum. As Northern Ireland's treasure house of the past and present, the museum is home to a rich collection of art, history and natural sciences with impressive galleries and interactive discovery zones. From Ireland to the South Pacific, ancient relics to modern masterpieces, the Ulster Museum offers something for everyone from the simply curious to the enthusiast.

We spent a couple of hours at the Ulster Museum one morning. It's located in the Botanic Gardens in Belfast, just next to Queens's University. Admission is free. The staff were great, helping us when we obviously looked like we didn't know where to go next, and checking our coats for us.

It's not a terribly big museum, and a little on the 'old fasioned' side, but some good exhibits. We were interested in the exhibits on early Ireland and Treasures of the Armada, but the Irish at War exhibit, though small, was excellent and gave a good overview of the recent 'troubles' in Northern Ireland. The museum is located over three floors with a cafe on the top floor which has good views over Belfast.
