Great for big and little kids.

Just WOW!  What can I say… a fantastic place to go for both young kids and big kids (OK… adults!) alike.   We had planned to visit the Gorge, Blists Hill in particular, but the... read more

Designed for young children, Enginuity was a big disappointment. Several of the exhibits were not working, some had no explanations to accompany them, and the explanations that were there were woefully inadequate. If Enginuity is supposed to excite children about science, it has failed.

We saw this as part of our 'passport' and it stated you could be in here for 2 plus hours. It would very much depend on the age of the children - can't agree it is for all ages only really for young primary children. Several of exibits not working and queuing to use some of them. It is fine... More

Title says it really. It's great for kids 9+ but not much to do for the little ones! They could be tapping into so much more!

Several of the exhibits were not working. There was little or no explanation of the science involved, eg a display indicated how many joules of energy it took to move a small locomotive but there was no explanation of how much energy a Joule actually is, such as how many joules you get from a slice of bread so it...

I'd like to give this place more than an average and probably would have done if I hadn't read some of the other reviews about this museum. It is very definitely for kids and we went there with kids to do stuff with kids and our 11 year old really enjoyed it. As ever the simple things were the most... More

I was on my own but if you have kids they will love it. Having said that I did still have a go on some of the experiments myself.

I think this was designed for children, which allows them to learn while having fun. As it was a bank holiday there was also a Meccano exhibition which was special. There was also a comfy area to sit down and eat some food. Make sure you buy the annual ticket to enable you to visit multiple locations for a good... More

Our family visited Enginuity on the Bank Holiday Monday. £8.10 for Adults and free for children under 5. Enginuity is just outside of the main high street in Ironbridge about 15 mins walk. It has its own carpark (£2.00). We found it very interesting and it is always good if you can get involved, especially as we have 2 young... More

We enjoyed our visit, trying out the various interactive exhibits, worth allowing an hour or 2 here, great for the kids also for Mums & Dads
