    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.
