This is a really fantastic development. Not only the building and the displays inside, but the outside of the building is very impressive. Make sure you learn the significance of the gantries and slipways and markings on the slipway. The start of the exhibition inside is a bit chaotic- people milling around in different directions and it's difficult to see all of the displays - but it gets MUCH better. A really great development allow about 3 hours for the inside and make sure you explore out.

I'd barely heard of the Ulster Museum before and assumed that it would be quite small and only worth an hour or two. My ignorance was exposed when I visited - the museum is both massive and very interesting. There are several floors, each dedicated to a particular topic (Art, history, natural history, etc.). I spent the most time in the history section, and it gives quite a comprehensive insight into the history of Northern Ireland, and to a lesser extent Ireland as a whole.

The trees, flowers and awesome specimens in the arbetoreum are really wonderful, the coleus collection is a show stopper, and the rose garden specimens could keep you busy all day. It is a relatively small garden and arbetorium, but no less lovely than some of the bigger ones. On a Sunday afternoon you will see families coming to see the exotic plants, young couples playing with their dogs, and seniors people watching from a bench. It was lovely to be beyond the footsteps of cruise crowds.
