Northern Ireland War Memorial Museum
Situated in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter beside Belfast Cathedral, the Northern Ireland War Memorial is an accredited museum which is a ‘must see’ for anybody with an interest in Northern Ireland’s role in the Second World War.

The museum offers a range of family events, as well as workshops and talks for primary schools and community groups.
