Visitors flock to Ulster Museum

By Emily Moulton

Over 16,000 people visited the Ulster Museum in the first fours days after its re-opening.

The popular tourist attraction was closed three years ago for refurbishment and since then around £17m has been spent on transforming the 1920s building into an attraction rivalling some of the best museums in the world.

It re-opened last Thursday and museum bosses have said the number of people who stopped by to take a look at the revamped premises in the first four days was testament to the museum’s popularity.

“People from across Northern Ireland and hundreds of international visitors have been pouring in to see for themselves the magnificent new Ulster Museum and I am thrilled and encouraged by the extremely positive reaction we have been receiving,” National Museums Northern Ireland director Tim Cooke said.
