Ulster Museum

Closed today

Admission to the Ulster Museum has returned to normal and you are no longer required to pre-book your tickets.

Ulster Museum is the home of Northern Ireland’s treasures – past and present. Our rich collections of art, history and natural sciences take you on a journey across the globe and to the far reaches of space. Your favourite stories and objects are waiting for you. 

Although no longer necessary, we recommend you still wear a face covering indoors for the protection of yourself and others, as advised here by Government guidelines, unless you are exempt.

If you feel more at ease wearing a face covering but forget to bring your own, there will be some available at the admission desk.

The Ulster Museum is open Tuesday - Sunday and remains closed on Monday, except for Northern Ireland Bank Holidays. Find out more information about our opening hours here. For information about our current exhibitions, please visit our What’s On Page.

Please note, our museums are a shared space, and at times, private events take place in the Ulster Museum's Belfast Room, which means any exhibitions on display in this space, will not be accessible to the public during this time. If you are travelling specifically to view an exhibition in the Belfast Room, we advise contacting the museum in advance to check the exhibition is accessible.


We've been awarded Tripexpert's 2021 Experts’ Choice Award which recognises businesses that have been consistently rated as outstanding, even in a challenging year for the global travel industry.
