W5 is Ireland's award winning science and discovery centre at the
Odyssey, Belfast …and is an amazing, interactive, experience for all

It is so much fun. It captured the imagination and interest of a 5 year old, a 40 year old
and a 66 year old …. and held it all day…with snack breaks of

you are probably relieved … but we were so enthralled with everything
we kept forgetting.
This was one of the pieces that allowed you to make as much noise as you wanted to
Jay playing ....ooops .....solving a problem !!
Kris having fun with one of the strength tests
With each floor, the more demanding the tasks became but as everything
can be handled , even Kris was not bored because you could have fun
just playing with all the things. Many tasks defeated Jay and me and
some we eventually understood but all were so much fun.

The yellow crane is one of a pair that I will blog about on the last post next week ...bet you will be glad when I finish these trip posts.
If you ever go to Belfast with children ....visit here ...you will not regret it. Bet you are glad I kept forgetting to take photos.
