NI Assembly Culture, Arts and Leisure Committee to Visit The Ulster Museum

Session: 2009/2010

Date: 18 November 2009

Reference: CAL02/09/10

The newly renovated Ulster Museum will play host to the Northern Ireland Assembly’s Committee for Culture, Arts and Leisure on Thursday 19 November. The Committee is at the Museum to discuss the preservation of maritime history and also will take the opportunity to tour the new exhibition spaces.

Committee Chairperson Barry McElduff MLA said: “The Committee will hear from people working on the ground to preserve our maritime history. We appreciate the pride that people here have in their history and we support efforts to preserve it through adequate museum provision.

“I know that the Committee will enjoy its tour of the museum which has been extensively improved and modernised. The £17 million pounds that has been invested has created a great exhibition space, allowing a wide range of artefacts to be on display to the public. The bright, open plan atmosphere and interactive exhibits create a great experience for visitors.

“The museum has attracted thousands of visitors in the last few weeks, and I am sure a significant proportion of them are tourists. This can only be good for the local economy and for the profile of our arts infrastructure.”
