W5 sign

School is back and the museums are empty again. A relaxed trip to W5 in Belfast to celebrate.  We will arrive at 10:30 for a 11am workshop on Light, eat a lunch in the cafe (you can bring a picnic) and go on to explore the exhibition.

We will be benefiting from group/educational rates so payment in advance is essential to secure a place.


"W5 has over 250 interactive exhibits which cover many curriculum areas such as science, technology, art & design, geography, mathematics, ICT and english. They are organised into four main exhibition areas DISCOVERY (for under 8's only), GO, SEE/DO (8 Years +). The exhibits are designed to develop children's understanding and encourage thinking and problem solving skills. We also have a new exhibit “Climbit”  Climbit is a unique, visually elegant, three dimensional sculpture specially designed for climbing.  Oval platforms let children traverse over and under and through an amazing structure.  Details of the exhibits in the different areas and links to the curriculum can be found on our website."

We will make and eat pizza and some sort of pudding together.
