Take a fascinating journey around Snibston where you can discover 500 years of technological innovation and its impact on our everyday lives. From the earliest mining tools, prototype jet engine to the largest fashion display outside London, there is plenty to explore at this must see museum!

Went in with my in-lawn and the kids age from 5 to 73. There was something to do for every age group. Very good value for money, very hands-on for the kids, interesting for the old age generation, brilliant outdoors playground! Over-roll very good!
