Dear National Museums of Northern Ireland,

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

Could you please supply me with information regarding the visitors'
flow in Ulster museum:

Here's the information I need:

- the total number of visitors per month in year 2014;
- number of museum's visitors hour per hour (a sample of one month' data will be enough)
- number of museum's visitors per day of week (a sample of two months' data will be enough)

No personal information needed, just the number of visitors per hour/per day.

I would be grateful if you could supply this information in the form of Excel file.

Yours faithfully,

Yana Beliakova
