Ulster Museum

The Ulster Museum is Northern Ireland’s treasure house of the past and present offering rich collections of art, history and natural sciences. Housed in an iconic building in the beautiful surroundings of Belfast’s Botanic Gardens, the Ulster Museum is a place of awe and wonder, a place with open doors for open minds to meet, learn and explore.

The Ulster Museum is one of the most sought after venues for conferences, gala dinners, welcome receptions and cultural evenings. Spaces conveniently located all on the ground floor offer flexibility for daytime or evening events. The spectacular Atrium provides a stunning backdrop for gala dinners and receptions, surrounded by some of the most iconic pieces from our national collection. The state of the art Lecture Theatre features a stage, tiered seating, a bespoke sound system and excellent acoustics. The Belfast and Grainger Rooms offer additional breakout and hospitality spaces.

A museum isn’t just a building or a place, it’s a force for change which positively impacts on the lives of the people of Northern Ireland. If you choose to bring your event to the Ulster Museum this support directly enables National Museums NI to continue preserving, restoring and exhibiting Northern Ireland’s treasures.
