My initial impression was that it was a bit small but it's crammed full of fun things to do for kids (and childish adults like me). Near enough all of the exhibits are hands on and the place is clean and tidy with a little shop at the front. You could quite easily visit here for half a day and... More

I take both my grandchildren (aged 3 and 4) when they come up from London. It's their firm favourite place to go when they visit. I was chatting to another grandfather last night and his grandchildren (who are older) have the same view. If you go frequently to this, and other Ironbridge museums, it's worth becoming a "friend" PR getting... More

As an adult couple we did not expect to find as much as we did to keep us entertained. There were plenty of interactive displays and information stands, but quite a few were not working which was disappointing. As this is primarily aimed at children it was no surprise there was a school party also there, but the building is... More

A great place to spend an hour or two. Loads of interactive displays to mess about with whilst accidentally learning. Best to visit at weekends or school holidays as school parties can make the visits less pleasant.

Excellent lots to see and lots of handles to turn and button to push in this interactive experience. The kids and parents all enjoyed it and we couldn't resist it either. Good practical stuff. If you want to encourage your children to become scientists or engineers then it is a must. Or just come and be entertained.

Brilliant museum. My partner and I had such fun in there, acting like young kids again. So much to do and enjoy. A real hit. And it's great for kids too!!

Plenty of interactive displays. I really liked the "zappers" which allowed you to find out how a wide variety of pieces of technology work. Free with Art Fund card.

Lost count of the many times I have been to Enginuity over the last 12years or so. It was an absolute favourite with my son form probably 5-12 years old. Unfortunately over the years the interactive exhibits have become worn out or just plain broken and have been like that for years! The prices have also risen, this is not... More
