We visited here with our 13 year old and stayed for about 1.5 hrs. It is quite good but the activities would keep the younger ones entertained for longer. We went as part of our passport ticket so was good for a wet afternoon. I have to say it wouldn't be good value for the normal entrance price if you... More

Needs repairing and new stuff putting in to stop the children getting annoyed it wasn't working. Not only that, but it ruined the education element to it.

We spent 2 or 3 hours at Enginuity. It's quite small, but good fun for the 6 to 12 age group. Some interesting things to do. They had setup a water pool with three desk fans at one end, and the kids each paid £1 to make little sail boats. Kept them entertained for a while, and with three kids... More

After purchasing an annual pass this was a repeat visit. The children, (one aged 13 and one aged 8) really enjoy this museum. It is very educational and the kids have plenty of fun while learning at the same time. Time passes really quickly while you are having so much fun, well worth a visit.

Children loved it, the time flew and they were tired in a "been doing lots of thinking" way afterwards. We did the Victorian street in the morning and this in the afternoon. Excellent day, bought a family pass with tesco vouchers.

This is aimed at kids, so most adults would be very bored unless they are there with children. Certainly educational for the young minds and a great place to keep them entertained on a wet afternoon, but seemed very expensive at £8.75 (adult) and £7.25 (children), unless you are using the annual passport.

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
