Top UK Museums

W5 Discovery & Science Centre includes eight new highly-interactive zones, packed with over 250 hands-on exhibits.

Visitors can immerse themselves in the Marvellous Machine - where they can use the various mechanical interactivity to learn about ancient mechanics such as Archimede’s screw, cogs, springs, and levers.

In the Energise zone you can power the city of Belfast - this fun and high energy zone delves into renewable and non-renewable energy forms and their impact on our lives and environment.

Our design incorporates fun STEAM learning with real tasks and scenarios, enabling visitors to discover a problem, then design and experiment how to overcome it.

“I feel honoured to have worked on this project - and it's great news that Blooloop have listed the attraction as a top museum in the UK.”
