I’m back to work now after maternity leave but am doing a phased return so I’m off on Fridays for a few weeks.
I’ve missed getting out and about every day so I make sure I always have something planned for my days off.
Last Friday that was a trip to Victoria Square in Belfast, not just for a spot of shopping but because the complex has teamed up with National Museums Northern Ireland to host a museum!
Throughout the month of August different historical activities will be popping up around the centre including a transport zone, craft zone and games zone.
So, what’s there to do?
Old craft and skills: Different workshops every day such as lace making, wool weaving and story telling.
Discover Old Belfast: What was Belfast like before Victoria Square was there?
Belfast Street Games: What did kids do for fun in days gone by? Experience hopscotch and “What’s the time, Mr Wolf?”
Experience Transport: Celebrating the life of NI inventor Harry Ferguson, famous for the development of tractors and the Ferguson monoplane
Docks in the Dome: Explore the history of ship building in Northern Ireland whilst looking at the H&W cranes
Check out the pictures below to see what it was like!
A nice day exploring our heritage and culture, and Niamh loved getting on the old transport!
