Lunch and break facilities

Enjoy your packed lunch in one of the Museum's unique exhibit buildings - the Parochial Hall. Please book your half hour slot when making your booking.

If your visit is to the Transport Museum, you may pre-book the Mobile Classroom near this location for your half hour lunch slot.

Regrettably, there are no facilities for making tea and coffee within these lunch venues. However, refreshments may be purchased at the Museum's tearooms.

On fine days groups may picnic in the museum grounds (all litter to be removed by group).

Our buildings and galleries form part of National Museums Northern Ireland's collections. Due to the special nature of these buildings we ask that packed lunches, breaks and confectionary are not eaten in them.
