This is a good concept but I felt that not all of the activities worked that well and the kids found them a bit frustrating. Worth going on a rainy day if you have a museum ticket.

There are lots of museums around Telford dealing with Britains engineering past, but this is the most hands on. It may be aimed at kids - and we where there with our toddler and baby - but they show how things work without being overly wordy. The largest attraction is a water course, with two dams, a run off canal... More

We really enjoyed this - despite being in our late 60's, the experiments and hands on experiences were just up our street. My husband couldn't wait for all the kids to move over and let him have a shot!!

I have visited today with my daughters 3 and 5 years old. Although I am sure a lot of the science and things went over their head it did not stop them having fun. It seemed really quiet when we visited. I asked a staff member about any shows and they explained they only did them when they had enough... More

We visited Enginuity as we bought a passport for all of the museums. To put in bluntly we were in and out in less than 10 minutes. There were a lot of activities but all aimed at children. Too simplified for adults. There was a new exhibit under construction on the first floor so when this is complete it might... More

We spent a whole afternoon at this museum, and our three daughters age 8, 6 and 5 loved it. It was hard to get them to leave as they kept wanting to have another turn on everything. It was very interactive and hands on for the kids (and the grownups!) We will definitely return.

Visited yesterday an 1.5 hour recommended visit in their brochure lasted 10 minutes, the place was terrible half the equipment was broken, missing pieces, didn't work. Very poor and not worth visiting. Staff chatting to each other and not friendly to customers.

Lots of hands on stuff to do. We spent around 3 hours here and our 13 year old Granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed it.. Interesting for all ages.
