Speaking after the visit, Minister Lyons said: “This new Museum of Innovation adds to Northern Ireland’s rich tourism offering, persuading potential visitors that there are things to do and see when they come here. The museum charts Northern Ireland’s vibrant history of innovating in the fields of science, technology and industry and is a fascinating place to explore.
“It is encouraging to see more local tourism businesses adopt the ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard as a tool to aid recovery and rebuild our local economy. The charter mark is a visible reassurance for customers that businesses are adhering to government and public health guidance.
“I would encourage everyone enjoying a staycation to explore Northern Ireland, including this excellent new addition to the tourism offering here.”
All four NMNI museums – the Ulster Folk Museum, Ulster Transport Museum, Ulster Museum and Ulster American Folk Park – have been awarded the ‘We’re Good to Go’ mark, a UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark to provide reassurance to businesses, customers and communities that safe working guidelines in relation to Covid-19 have been adopted.
Accommodation, visitor attractions, restaurants and pubs, business conference and events venues, and tour and coach operators are currently eligible to apply.
