Great day for all ages. Can easily spend a whole day here. Thoroughly enjoyed but children and adults alike. Lunch in the cafe was basic sandwiches and not a lot of choice but nice anyway. Not particularly child friendly though. Plenty space to eat if...More

A quiet Tuesday in Belfast.. W5 science in the Odessey was great fun. Wish we had more time. Very friendly staff and so much to experiment with. Suit all ages.

If you’re travelling to Belfast with a toddler, this place is ideal to win him/her round. 4-5 floors full of fun games, activities, climbing, educational stuff and I think with a very fair price.

Both are good but I would say spend most of your day at W5 it's more fun for kids than the Titanic exhibit. It also might be a bit much to do both in the same day, they are both big places to get round.
