4 ULSTER MUSEUM
Gleaming from a multi-million pound redevelopment, there are marvels wherever you turn in the Ulster Museum, so give yourself the time to enjoy it all. Alongside exhibitions that track the rise and fall of Belfast’s craft trades are tens of thousands of fossils, as well as the only dinosaur bones ever found on the island of Ireland.
Works of Asian, African, European and Pacific art adorn the museum, along with the famed Egyptian mummy, Takabuti. Meanwhile, the archaeological displays capture Ireland’s evolution from the Stone Age right through to Late Medieval times. The excellent fine art exhibitions offer a glimpse into international and local history and culture through costume and fashion, pottery, furniture and even jewellery.
