This place needs an overhaul. But that said we spent 4 hours there with a 9 year old boy who did water play, cog construction, puzzle solving, zoetrope making, 'boiler' game, made a train 'move' ...yes really a full sized engine! And many more little delights. We went with two lots of friends who also had a child each (10... More

We took our 2 kids (ages 7 and 3) to Enginuity at Ironbridge on Saturday and thought that we could spend a few hours there, but we actually stayed a lot longer as there was so much to do, I had heard that there were lots of interactive things for the kids, and the various displays explain how things worked...

Looks as though it's had its day and needs a complete re vamp. Upstairs was out of action, lots of things were broken or worn eg..the earthquake test build pieces didnt fit together. Also the explanations of how to get things to work and what the point of the apparatus actually was, was badly explained. It looked as thought kids... More

A great museum for kids, so much cause and effect, lots to do and very much geared towards 4+ age group. Much younger than that and they won't reach to see as much. NIce smallish environment too, so you can almost let them wander off, and not worry too much. Good facilities for toilets etc. You can take a picnic,... More

Took three children 13, 8 and 2 years old. All enjoyed thoroughly being kept well occupied and learning too. All hands on activities and even if he youngest didn't understand much of it yet he still loved it! Even better when upstairs space reopens ( closed for new exhibition on our visit) we spent over two hours there and didn't... More

Absolutely brilliant. Very hands on, lots to do. Everyone in our family learnt a lot and had a great time. Highly recommend it. Only downside is it's not great for very young children but then it is not aimed at them. All the exhibits were too high up for my youngest to see or reach and a couple if hands... More

Loads to do and see, would interest most ages as they have a small soft area for small kids too, if you want to know how something is made and what from this is your place, it's good as it's in doors so a place to visit even if the weather is wet..

Excellent venue for a wedding party. However, the price of drinks is ridiculous - £15 for a bottle of cheap wine, £3.95 for a bottle of beer.
