Any family trip to Belfast should include a trip to the Zoo! It is located on the slope of Cavehill overlooking the city and is often praised for its tranquil environment for guests and the animals. They often hold events for preservation and education and have some great photography competition every year, that is open for participation!
If you want to come face to face with dinosaurs or mummies, than a trip to the Ulster Museum is the place for you. The museum is home to a rich collection of art, history and natural sciences and free for all visitors.
W5 at the SSE Arena is a science and discovery centre, so visitors of all ages can let their imagination go free, with more than 250 interactive exhibits.
