We’re currently working on our Museum Crush listings and will be improving this offer over the coming days…

Northern Ireland's treasure house of the past and present. Take 8,000 square metres of galleries, add rich collections of art, archaeology, local history and natural sciences, mix them with a constantly changing programme of temporary exhibitions and events, and you have all the ingredients for a fascinating voyage of discovery. From ancient Ireland to the South Pacific, from masterpieces of modern art to rare flowers, the Museum is a window to the north of Ireland and a window on the world.
