W5 - Planning a Visit?

Planning a Visit?

The education section is designed to help teachers and students explore the services on offer to educational, community and youth groups. You can find detailed information on our Exhibits, Workshops, Special Events, Demos & Shows as well as our Outreach programme.

Our workshops, programmes and exhibits have been developed to support the education curriculum in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and are designed to provide a unique and stimulating experience for the user.

Community Relations and citizenship focused groups can also benefit from using W5 facilities as our workshops and exhibits encourage discussion and the sharing of ideas.

Accessibility and Special Needs

The building and the majority of exhibits are fully accessible to wheelchair users with accessible toilets on every floor. DISCOVERY can be used by special needs groups over the age of 8 if it suits their developmental stage and workshops can be adapted to suit your requirements so please contact us to discuss how we can help you.

Please note that afternoon sessions are usually quieter and that strong magnets and strobe lighting are used in some areas of the building.
