We spent a whole day in W5 . Having traveled from Dublin the night before and staying in Lisburn we were able to arrive early enough and it wasn't too busy. My kids are 8 and 5 and it was particularly suitable for the 8 year old . The 5 year old was a little harder to please and got... More

I took my 2 children here aged 6 and 13 and they loved it! the under 8's section was closed for a refurb, but it made no difference to our day as there was plenty to explore. The boys both loved the climb it part at the start, and spent hours exploring all of the other area's (they could make... More

Great place for 2 to 3 hours with the kids. Ours were 9, 7 and 4 and they each found something interesting to do. Highly recommended.

This place was located beside the titanic expo and was a blast for the kids they simply loved it. A couple of levels of interactive games. We spent too much time at the lower level, which we thought was for the younger ones, our kids 9+11 enjoyed the upper level the best

I am a fan of science and it is important for me that my children get the chance to enjoy as well as learn about it. They have a great time when we go and I can see already even at their young age W5 gets them thinking.

Went to W5 for a birthday day out. Took our 2 year old as she loved the free one at The Outlet. Long story short, should have saved our money and gone to Outlet instead. Plenty to see and do, but the whole place was filthy. We were there in the morning, so it wasn't even a day's worth of... More

This is actually better than The Science Museum in London. So much to do and learn - my kids never tire of W5. Recommend you bring a picnic lunch though as no good restaurants nearby!

We took the kids to Belfast to visit W5 as a treat before going back to school. We are a family of 6 (2 adults, 3 children and 1 infant). Total cost £31. They loved it. It was a rainy UK bank holiday and very busy. However the queue moved quickly and although there were a lot of people inside... More
