Discovery centres

The Ulster Museum interactive discovery centres, Discover Art, History and Nature offer unique and exciting learning experiences to people of all ages. They are the places to get your hands on some of the most unusual and fascinating items from the collections.

Schools Information

The purpose of these areas is to encourage pupils to explore, discover and question the world around us and to develop their skills of thinking, problem-solving and decision-making.

Schools can book curriculum-based learning sessions delivered by our demonstrators. During your 45 minute session your class has exclusive use of the Discovery Centre.

Teachers and supervising adults must stay with their pupils in the Discovery Centres.

Discovery Centre opening times:

  • Morning 10.00am - 1.00pm
  • Afternoon 2.00pm - 5.00pm

Please note that the Discovery Centres close for lunch 1.00 - 2.00pm.

Discovery Centres will also close for booked school groups so it may not always be possible to gain access to all or some of the centres during your visit.
