Our 360˚ Pink Floyd shows never fail to stimulate and we're pleased you enjoyed the private screening. This year we're launching a regular programme of 360˚ entertainment shows called Dome Club (that will include some Pink Floyd) and you can find out more on our website.

“Great day out for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

If you enjoy hands on museums with loads for kids to do then think tank is for you. We had a great time with our 6.5, 5 and 7 month old. The science and planetarium sessions were really engaging. Bonus that its free with Tesco clubcard points. Easy to park. Bright, airy and loads to do. We loved the water play and the talking robot. Could easily spend a day there.

“Sad It Costs So Much.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Over expensive way to view items 'gifted' to the original science museum for the enjoyment of the citizens of Birmingham.

“A great family day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

We visited on January 2nd this year and it was our second visit. Our daughters are aged 5 and 7 and there is just so much for them to do. We took part in kitchen science experiments, visited the hands on human body section, did arts and crafts, saw the big engines etc. was all great fun and they were learning too. I love the little doctors surgery and cafe area. Great for a wide age range. They loved phoning each other in the different sections. The water play area great too. The garden was closed for winter but looked great an we were given a free pass to return to it in the summer. A well priced for what u get day out.

“Fun fun fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

A wonderful day out with lots of activities. If you go during the school holidays, there is an animal man with lots of cool cretures and animals. They also offer discounts for students and disable. Great rold play activities, with a doctors surgery, cafe, garage and dentist for the kids. They will love the role play, is great equipment. Water activities. space room where you can see the stars overhead, absolutely beautiful and also a live talking robot that imitates you!
There is also old trains and lots and lots of interesting fact to learn. Great learning and playing day for the whole family.
