Ulster Museum set to reopen on Thursday

The Ulster Museum reopens tomorrow morning at 11.30am following a three year long £17 million refurbishment, exactly 80 years after it was first opened in 1929. Old favourites including Takabuti, Peter the Polar Bear, the Chambers Car and the Edmontosaurus dinosaur skeleton will be back on display, as well as the first ever reconstruction of the Giant Deer to be displayed on the island of Ireland, in the new sleek state of the art centre at Botanical Gardens in south Belfast. The centre will be open tomorrow until 10.00pm, and entry is free.

A great welcome back to an old friend!
