We had a wonderful interactive afternoon here. We are a family of 5 and we all had a good time. My 18yr old found things to do too, however we feel this is aimed at a younger market. There are pockets of the museum that adults will enjoy more. There is a brilliant Planetarium show which you book at the... More

We visted with the grandchildren they loved it .So much to see and get involved in. The outdoor section is very child orientated and fun as well as being informative; The cafe is expensive and they don't offer a children's menu,they do have a picnic area inside. The planetarium is worth the £1.50 put look at the activities sheet before... More

really enjoyed recent trip to the Think tank museum. We had two for one tickets as we travelled to Birmingham by train. Price not too bad even without this, compared to some places (such as sea life centres). Child price slightly cheaper than an adults so that was good. Lots to do and my 8 year old really enjoyed some... More

A very interesting and interactive place, however I would recommend if you're an adult, that you visit when the kids are at school! We hardly got to see anything or play on any of the interactive games.

Remote parking is easy enough, if a little expensive. once inside there is so much to not only view and read, but also lots of interactive exhibits for adults and kids alike. And being really old the collection of "Old fashioned" games consoles and electronics sent my mind off reminiscing. The kids loved to watch the big mechanical machines operate,... More

We went to the Thinktank on a day out with children. The children loved the museum and enjoyed looking and touching everything. It is definitely interactive. Some of the objects in the museum need a little fixing. The garden - which is free to enter to the public from 3pm-5pm - is fabulous! The children would not leave it! There... More
