W5 at Odyssey

Do you fancy launching a rocket, or flying a plane? Want to sneak up on a butterfly or find out about the rock beneath your feet? How about programming and controlling the world’s only commercially available robot? At W5, your imagination and curiosity are the keys to unlocking worlds you've only imagined!

Description

W5 is a science and discovery centre, not a museum, so visitors of all ages are free to let their imagination turn, twist and fly through more than 250 hands-on permanent exhibits! W5 also presents a changing programme of large and small scale temporary exhibitions and events and have a daily programme of live science demonstrations and shows within the admission price!

Each day at W5 is full of exploration and discovery with over 250 amazing interactive exhibits in four incredible exhibition areas - DISCOVERY, GO, SEE and DO, W5 provides a unique experience as well as fantastic fun for visitors of all ages.

Admission is valid all day and you can stay as long as you wish which means a day out at W5 offers great value-for-money, something many cost-conscious families will welcome!

Climbit

Discover W5’s BIGGEST exhibit ever! Climbit is an unusual mixture of physical fun, exploration and art! This huge multi-storey climbing structure, which is a cross between a maze and a jungle gym, takes over the Atrium at the heart of W5.

The first of its kind in the UK and Ireland, Climbit is a unique, visually elegant, three dimensional sculpture specially designed for climbing. Oval platforms suspended from steel pipes and cables let visitors traverse over, under and through the amazing structure.

Meet RoboThespian

Meet RoboThespian, W5’s new permanent exhibit which is completely unique to the island of Ireland. RoboThespian is a life sized, humanoid, interactive robot who can move, speak, educate, interact and entertain!

RoboThespian is primarily a robot actor and performer. He is fully interactive, user friendly, and capable of communicating and entertaining in a way that few people will have experienced before. This static, humanoid robot can be controlled by the visitor, via a touchscreen panel, and can sing, greet, inform, act and even do impressions. Visitors can choose from a wide range of pre-programmed performance sequences or can even control RoboThespian’s movement and voice to create performance pieces of their own!

*We recommend that you allow a minimum of two hours to visit W5.
