Queen's Quay Belfast BT3 9QQ

The world is changing and so are we. After 20 years as one of Northern Ireland’s favourite family destinations, W5 has been completely reimagined with a major £5million investment.

From top to bottom, W5 has been completely transformed. Two reimagined exhibition floors will excite and inspire, with exhibits and experiences covering everything from climate change and nature to film and TV production, optical illusions, built engineering, medical science and much, much more.

Daily science shows at a purpose-built Science Bar will be a place for interactive learning and engagement. Meanwhile, a new under 8s area developed by W5’s in-house creative team, will ignite the imaginations as visitors step into a living storybook world, where family favourites are brought to life through immersive roleplay.

A refreshed ground floor includes The Lost Planet – a space and dinosaur themed maze of climbing frames and slides that takes soft play to a new dimension – and an eye-catching new ‘Skull Cave’ exhibit features giant replica dinosaur and human skulls.
