What can we say..
Utterly delighted we chose the Ulster museum for our ceremony. Many guests hadn’t been before and were tickled at the idea of getting married in a museum. We really couldn’t have asked for more! Communication was top notch, venue was immaculate, drinks reception was seamless, and let’s not even start on the museum as a backdrop for photographs! A million percent recommend.

Literally the best best day! And that statement has been echoed by huge numbers of our guests and our families! Staff, food, venue, master of ceremonies, bar staff and service! The venue was just perfect. Indoor and outdoor photo opportunities were endless. Nothing was too much to ask and Rachel and Cormac were regularly checking in to ensure our needs were met. We are delighted and would choose exactly the same over again with no exceptions. Thank you Ulster Museum and craft event catering. You were amazing!

Most amazing alternative wedding venue!
We had our winter wedding at the Ulster Museum in December 2022. The venue is so fun and beautiful at this time of year! We had a private gallery for drinks reception, while guests can also walk around the museum. The evening dinner was beautiful in the atrium and easily fitted 150 guests. Ulster Museum staff were extremely helpful and so flexible and accommodating for our day. As were the catering company 'Craft Catering' - with delicious and generous meals. Great location for photos around Queen's and Botanic Garden's and very easy for those visiting or travelling to Belfast. Highly recommend!
