Been here loads of time with kids. Always busy they never seem to get space to enjoy all there is to offer. However great learning opportunities and kids enjoy it

By far, the best childrens' museum I've visited - my four year old LOVED it and we will most eagerly return here for a future visit. Love that they offer free in-and-out privileges for the day as well. The climbing exhibit is so unique!

I suggested to the descriptions in the network and I was not disappointed. The need for 1.5h on each floor and there are 5. There you can spend the whole day and still feel unsatisfied. Revelation for each age group.

I took my 10 and 12 year olds and they had a blast! Loads of interactive displays all in good order. I liked the dinosaur screen and my kids enjoyed the programmable robot. Nice little demonstration show on numbers for a much needed sit down

A must if you travel with children. It has numerous amusements for all ages. Construction and building games. Climbing platforms. A lot of things to touch and experiment.

When in Belfast, we are always looking for something interesting to do with our Grandkids "rain or shine". W5 is just the place. An indoor venue that is educational, fun, interactive... and a great place for the kids to use up some energy. It seems safe and secure with very helpful staff.

I visited here yesterday (23rd August 2016) with my young nephew and both of us had a brilliant time. There is loads to do and you could easily spend hours here. We ended up being there for 2.5 hours and were disappointed that we couldn't get around the whole thing. There was a whole building area on the top floor... More
