Visit the unique Elements Gallery in the Ulster Museum, the only one of its kind anywhere in Europe, to see for yourself what each element looks like and discover how some of the most unfamiliar elements turn up in some of the most everyday objects.
Pick up one of our family Elements exhibition trails at the reception desk to discover more about the elements that are all around us, in the things we use, and in every one of us.
For school groups (Year 8 upwards) a free gallery booklet will lead students from the Periodic Table display through the familiar themes in the gallery. Discover which element was the scourge of hat makers, which element is the rarest on
Earth, and which ‘stone age’ element is vital for electronics. An intriguing and enlightening look at the use of elements through time.
