Museum is 5-star attraction!
The Museum of Orange Heritage in Belfast has been once again officially recognised for its quality of service.
The Orange Institution’s main outreach facility was recently presented with a certificate of excellence by the online travelling review site, TripAdvisor, for the consistent achievement of high ratings for travellers.
To qualify for such a commendation, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four out of five. The Orange museum has maintained its five-star rating.
Museum curator Jonathan Mattison, pictured here with Service Officer Coleen Large, hailed the award as a “fantastic achievement”.
He said: “This recognition from TripAdvisor is a wonderful reward not only for the museum, but for all the staff involved in its everyday operation.
“Since opening in 2015, we have been delighted to welcome thousands of visitors from not only Northern Ireland, but also the rest of the UK, the Republic of Ireland, and from across the world.
“To secure a certificate of excellence demonstrates the high standards of our museum, and we will seek to build on such positive customer feedback in the days ahead.”
The museum at Schomberg House displays a wealth of items relating to the history of Orangeism across the world.
Artefacts include King William’s original saddlecloth from the Battle of the Boyne and the Paymaster General’s book of payments to the Williamite army.
The east Belfast interpretative centre is currently hosting the ‘For Singing and for Dancing’ exhibition.
The Museum of Orange Heritage in Belfast is open to the public from Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm. The Loughgall museum is open from 10am to 4pm.
