Visitors will have the chance to find out more about snakes, iguanas and other reptiles, and learn how today's lizards can explain more about how dinosaurs lived.
The Real Reptiles exhibition coincides with the Age of the Dinosaur exhibition - which opened in May.
Talking Reptile's Brian Stewart will bring some of his animal collection - including the 14-foot long Albino Burmese python, Biscuit, and Jubjub, an Asian Waterdragon.
Geraldine Macartney, from National Museums Northern Ireland, said Real Reptiles is the latest special display running during the Age of Dinosaur exhibtion.
"This event is a great opportunity for lovers of dinosaurs and all other reptiles to come along and find out more about the fascinating links between some of the animals which exist today and the creatures which roamed the earth hundreds of millions of years ago," she explained.
"We'll be exploring the common ancestry of snakes and dinosaurs 300 million years ago as well as investigating some interesting facts, for example, we know that snakes have the remains of a pelvic girdle which shows that, like dinosaurs, they once had legs."
Real Reptiles is on Saturday 4 August and takes place in the Learning Zone of the Museum from 10.30am to 5pm.
It includes a Discover Dinosaurs interactive area where children can try their hand at being a palaeontologist, handle original fossils including giant leg bones, skulls and dinosaur eggs, and have all their questions answered by Dinosaur Demonstrators.
Age of the Dinosaur, which also features an interactive area where children can try their hand at being a palaeontologist, handle original fossils including giant leg bones, skulls and dinosaur eggs, will continue at the Ulster Museum until 16 September.
