The Soyuz capsule, which transported astronaut Tim Peake to and from the International Space Station, has landed at the Ulster Transport Museum. Presented by Samsung and the Science Museum Group, get up close to this famous spacecraft to examine its fully equipped interior and the exterior char marks caused by its impact with Earth's atmosphere. Admission is FREE.

Alongside the exhibition, visitors can relive the descent from space from the eyes of an astronaut through the latest Samsung Gear VR technology. This fully immersive virtual reality experience, narrated by Tim Peake himself, is suitable for visitors aged 13 and over, and costs £6 per person. These tickets can be brought on the day of a visit.

Museum is closed on Mondays except for Bank Holiday Mondays.
