Please note: Our ‘Taken for a ride’ exhibition will be closed to the public from Tuesday 9th May to make way for a very exciting new exhibition coming soon! Watch this space…

We're really looking forward to welcoming you to the Ulster Transport Museum! Pre-book your date and arrival window now

Journey through time and discover the epic story of transport and social change in this part of the world at the Ulster Transport Museum. It’s a unique place for the dreamers and doers of tomorrow to draw inspiration from the engineering giants of this small country. Your favourite stories and objects are waiting for you.

Although no longer necessary, we recommend you still wear a face covering when you're in the Transport Museum 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 kiosk.

We have a brand new exhibition “The Museum of Innovation” located in our Land, Sea and Sky galleries which includes our much loved DeLorean and a whole host of new, interactive experiences. 

We know you’ve missed being able to get on board our trains and trams, but now you can! With some changes so we can look after our much-loved vehicles. During the peak of the pandemic, we had to completely close off access to our trains and trams to keep you, and them, safe.

During your visit you will now be able to access a number of our carriages and engines on a rotational basis.

Why are we rotating access? Because we are still living with COVID-19 and your safety is still our top priority. Rotating our beloved trains will allow for the carriages and engines to quarantine thus removing the virus from the surfaces without causing damage to the artefacts themselves.

For information about our upcoming events, guided tours and current exhibitions, please visit our What’s On Page. Ulster Transport Museum is open Tuesday - Sunday (times vary) and remains closed on Monday, except for Northern Ireland Bank Holidays. Find out more information about our opening hours here.  

Our Midland Tearoom is now closed however there are vending machines with hot drinks, cold refreshments and confectionery which can be enjoyed in our allocated seating area. Food and drink are not allowed in our exhibition galleries in order to help us keep them safe.
