Royal Ulster Rifles Museum

Royal Ulster Rifles Museum is a must for anyone interested in military history. Ulster was heavily affected by both world wars suffering enormous losses in battles of the First World War, particularly the Somme, and sustaining the heaviest Blitz damage of any UK region outside London in the World War II. Artifacts from the uniforms and weapons of the Royal Ulster Rifles and its predecessor foot regiments are collected here, charting its impressive history through the wars that have shaped the 20th Century. Admission is free.

Have a go at playing a laser harp, building a robot, defying the lie detector or just try hanging out in the wind tunnel. You will find W5 inside the Odyssey, Belfast's millennium landmark project and the latest architectural addition to the spectacular waterfront skyline.

Titanic Belfast

Titanic, the British liner has remained ever popular through literature, movies, exhibits and folk songs. Considered to be the biggest experience relating to the Titanic in the globe, Titanic Belfast showcases the complete story of this passenger line - right from its inception to its unfortunate sinking through stunning, interactive displays, including artifacts such as the launch day tickets and last luncheon menu. Set on the former shipbuilding site where the Titanic and Olympic were built, Titanic Belfast is among the city's most prominent landmarks. Resembling an iceberg and hulls of a ship, this striking architectural masterpiece is encased in 3000 contrasting shaped aluminum plated sheets in intricate geometrical patterns. It is not only an ode to RMS Titanic but also to the city's maritime heritage. The historic slipways feature life-size frameworks of the Titanic and Olympic while its plaza is outlined with a map of its journey with LED lights and tiles.

Ulster Folk and Transport Museum

This museum constitutes the largest transport collection in Ireland, housing everything from carriages to cars to fighter planes, as well as the definitive exhibition on the Titanic. The second half of this museum is an open plan village from about a 100 years ago. Discover how a small rural community in Ulster survived, interacted, educated children and worshiped God. Some cottages evoke nostalgia, especially when you see the delicately carved cribs and the beautiful quilts; others are bare and cramped. This is a world rendered with loving care and attention to detail. The museum opening times change seasonally.
