The W5 Interactive Discovery Centre is a science and technology centre based in Belfast. Comparable to the Cité des Sciences in Paris, the W5 brings together the best of science, and thus shares its knowledge with its visitors… A great place for a family visit!
The W5 is a building that offers more than 200 interactive exhibitions that are fun and surprising to say the least! Divided into 4 distinct sections (START, GO, SEE and DO), the W5 puts science in the spotlight, with live science demonstrations, all-day shows and 100% interactive exhibits, suitable for the whole family!
For the little ones, you can watch your children become apprentice mechanics by customising a Mini in the W5 garage, play Olympic swimmers by diving into a pool equipped with ball guns, or watch your children become DJs by mixing like pros in a music studio.
But it’s not just for kids! In the other sections, you can also listen to your heart accelerating in full effort, test elementary physical properties, or build a robot, and discover the riches of biodiversity!
The visit is really fun, and worth the detour. Possibility to eat on the spot, and even to bring back a small souvenir from the W5 shop. Another asset: the W5 has smagnificent views over Belfast and the Lagan river!
