We loved this place. From the look of it, you'd think that you'd be in-and-out within an hour, but you'll be surprised. The exhibits are well thought out and contain infrmation that will interest both children and adults. We all stood and stared for 20 minutes as the robotic arm went about its task building the Eiffel Tower and playing... More

When visiting Ironbridge we spent a couple of hours here. My son really enjoyed himself and was worth the visit. Bought an annual pass when visiting Blast hill museum so didn't need to pay anything extra to come here!

Enginuity comprises a series of "hands on" exhibits for children to play with. Ours liked the water cycle activity best. Unfortunately a couple of others were not working today. Personally I liked the preserved Austin Mini that had been partly cut away. I had a car like that myself many years ago.

We spent a wet afternoon here. As other reviewers have said, the entry price does seem rather steep but we bought the family passport on the day as we plan to return to Blists Hill. If you buy this online you save money but you can't do it in the car on the way there as we tried (😉) as... More

Spent a lovely morning here, lots to learn and plenty of hands on activities to keep the children busy. A great way to spend half a day. The boat building activity was enjoyable and the children would probably have spent longer here if we'd let them!

Nice little place with lots of different activities for the kids to do and learn about. They loved making boats and racing them. Only need a couple of hours but worth a visit

Very interesting exhibits but somewhat worn and tired out. A lot of stuff needs attention to bring it back into proper hands-on use

We paid for the annual family ticket when we went to Blists hill which allowed free access to Enginuity. There are plenty of hands on things for both children and adults alike but you'll have everything done within less than an hour give or take. I would say that you'd struggle to fill more than 1.5 hours there. Saying that... More

Went here with a group of friends with under 8s. Very interesting and stimulating hands on experiences. Kids were kept occupied and it was educational too. Didn't get to do it all, just ran out of time. Staff very helpful and friendly. Worth a visit. Good for a rainy day.
