Northern Ireland War Memorial

Situated in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter beside St. Anne's Cathedral, the Northern Ireland War Memorial is an accredited museum which is a must see for anyone with an interest in Northern Ireland's role in the Second World War. The museum tells the story of the Belfast Blitz in 1941, the Ulster Home Guard, the role played by women in the war and the presence of US Forces. The fallen are remembered in a magnificent stained-glass window and a granite plinth containing Books of Remembrance for the First and Second World War. A memorial screen recalls the names of over 1000 people who lost their lives in the Belfast Blitz. The museum offers a range of family events, as well as workshops and talks for primary schools and community groups.
