Interesting place- not all working

The idea of enginuity is that people can go and interact with the exhibit to learn about engineering and various things like that. Us big kids (19, 23, 50 & 52) had a good time... read more

We experienced a great couple of hours here whilst on holiday in the area. My children, especially my 8 year old loved it. There is so much to do and learn for people of all ages including me! Wonderful interaction on so many things and lots to learn. The workshops were great too.

Everything is geared for kids and their tired parents. They can touch and try everything. There is plenty of variety and enough clever stuff to make them think. We had 7 kids in our group and they all made their own battery powered cars (for a whopping great £2.50 each extra). Best money I've spent I loved it as did... More

Came here a few weeks ago for a wedding and the function room was surprisingly lovely. The grounds and buildings are interesting and showcase the historical architecture very well. Unsure of the actual museum didn't go in as closed.

great fun for kids of all ages (even those at the age of 35!!!) and well worth a visit, have fun drowning the villages in the water dam exhibit and making lots of noise with the other various exhibits

If you only visit one of the Museums in the area please do not make it Ingenuity. It does not lack a collection but it does lack labelling and is poorly curated. There is a steam car and narrow gauge loco in the entrance but there is nothing to tell you what they are and in what context. The place... More

We'd been here years ago with the kids. This time we went as a couple, a bit wary that this was a kids place. It was great fun! Few kids there and most were helping their 'grownups' complete the activities. Lots to see and do. Not a huge place, so best to combine with one or two other local venues... More

Expected to spend 1.5hours here as read about it being interactive. Was impressed with what was working but about a third of the exhibits were out of action only spent 40 minutes there. It must be really disappointing for the children who attend. I hope it gets sorted soon.

This is the ideal activity for a wet day when the children are driving you mad. They probably wont realize it but they will learn so much, there are helpful staff to assist with any queries. The interactive exhibits can be challenging and lots of fun.

You can see how things work and make your own locomotive, test yourself against a robot and have lots of fun with water!
