  • i brought a group of kids here from work. it is brilliant for kids of all ages and abilities. something for everyone. 
  • Visited W5 with my girlfriend for my birthday and even though I had just turned 24 we had an amazing time. It was the quickest 3 hours I've ever experienced. So much to see and do here and all very informative and great fun
  • Cool fun for kids Young and old! You'll definitely learn something.
  • "A slip hazard ". My son fell and hit his head in a area suitable for under 8s. Water, balls and a slippy floor don't mix, the floor should have had an non slip finish. An encounter with dinosaurs, consisted of 3 exhibits, a wasted journey and waste of money.
  • Brilliant fun to visit after doing the Titanic exhibition. Could have spent the whole day here. Will definitely return.
  • Lots of fun for all the family, spent the entire day here with my son and we were completely entertained the whole time.
