    Birthday Party Madness
    Recently attended here for my oldest son's 11th birthday. We had a total of 13 kids and four adults. The kids had an absolute blast. In total we were here for over 4.5 hours. went to see the strange robin redbreast show. Not as good as the live experiments in the lecture hall we saw last time. Light show was pretty. The staff were helpful on the whole and had no problems with bringing in our own food and drinks. with a large crowd this was good. First time back since the refurb and impressed. the kids particularly loved the film studio. Would definitely recommend. We booked under the discounted January sale rate so it was a great day out at a lower cost and allowed us to add on a session at the soft play area. Gave the adults a rest and seat while the kids went mad.

    Great time, a must in Belfast
    We had a great time
    Really informative, the way the tour works is really informative, have made the most of the wing you can visit with lots of videos and cells with stuff to look at in.
    Really clean and organised
    For £12.50 each an absolute bargain, could easily charge £20.00
    With a good look around and taking on all the information you are looking at 2 to 2.5 hours.

    A must see in Belfast
    This is a great attraction
    It's free!! Went in and asked if we could look around, was just in time for the guided tour, was brilliant, around 45 minutes and the lady was exceptional! Can take photos and wear the robes and sit in the mayor's chair.
    Also have a 16 room historical attraction as well, again this is free and a coffee shop at the end if you want to have a nice coffee and cake.
    Stunning historical building and so accessible for the local community and tourists

    Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museum even though we were only able to spend a short time going round. Lots of very informative displays in all of the sections and some very impressive art work in the gallery. Would definitely recommend a visit.

    Great place to spend a hour or more on a Saturday morning. Great food options available if not a little on the expensive side. Plenty of independent traders selling their wares too.

    We would have liked to spend a lot more time here, but very much enjoyed our quick visit. There is a very well preserved 19th century palm house. We also walked through the Tropical Ravine house. It was full of interest, free to enter and certainly warmed us up on a chilly November day in Belfast.

    Great Shopping Area
    Fantastic variety of bars, restaurants and shops. Stayed in a nearby hotel and walked to the cathedral quarter. You wont be disappointed.

    We last did a tour of the parliament buildings 4 years ago and decided to do it again whilst visiting Belfast. The guide was Micky, who was our guide last time. Micky displayed a fantastic knowledge of the history of Ireland linked with the history of Scotland where cross overs occured. His stories were delivered in an interesting, informative manner with lots of humour thrown in. He kept the groups attention throughout. A fantastic experience and well worth a visit. Thanks Micky !

    Last of the great White Star ships
    The SS Nomadic was built in 1911 alongside its sister ship, the RMS Titanic. The Nomadic is east to see, near the Titanic museum. It's the last surviving ship of the once-mighty White Star Line, ruler of the seas. The Nomadic has been restored to its past glory, but it's a tad disappointing.

    Windsor Park is a winner.
    Gary Thompson our tour guide was both funny & very informative. We shared so many memories of past players, grounds, fans not just Northern Ireland but football in general. A ground tour, a history tour, an interactive tour, we had it all. A great place to visit. Highly recommend.

    Wow! Sums up our visit in 3 letters. Visited last night ( Wednesday 14th Dec) with my husband and our 7 year old son. Everything was set up so well, Mrs Claus makes a fantastic cup of hot chocolate and her husband was simply magical. The other star of the show was our tour guide Alex, we can’t thank him enough for making our night as special as it was. Definitely an Xmas experience to remember

    I was lucky to get tickets for a tour of the Grand Opera House. Our guide told us a bit of history, pointed out symbols amongst the ornate decor (we would never have noticed these) and we ended up on the stage looking out at the 'audience'! A wonderful way to spend a few hours. Would highly recommend looking out for tickets.
    Thankyou to our host Anna (apologies if I got your name wrong)

    Such a great day!

    Took advantage of the £6 ticket offer in January and we’re so glad we did.

    There’s so much here to do - not sure if my husband or 11 year old nephew had the best time.

    Staff were great and helpful; toilets and everywhere super clean.

    Cafe very affordable (we’re originally from London and the difference in prices is astounding).

    Looking at getting season passes now.

    Amazing artwork
    Well worth the visit. I was on a bus tour and we stopped on the other side of the road. Murals from the Troubles but also current events
