If your children are always asking how certain things work or why they can’t visit the moon on an aeroplane then a trip to Thinktank Birmingham could be the perfect educational and fun day out for them. A visit to one of the greatest science museums in the country can teach you and your children about the story of Birmingham’s transport revolution – with demonstrations and interactive exhibits including some of the world’s oldest steam engines brought to life – through to the history of marine life with the Ichthyosaur skeleton, a giant sea monster from the time of the dinosaurs, displayed in full for the first time.
Thinktank Science Museum adds new events to its calendar each month such as educational talks from science experts to seasonal activity days and Thinktank Birmingham offers could help you save money on these special events. As well as special events, there are also shows in various parts of the museum such as the Planetarium which offers visitors a journey around the solar system or you could be shrunk to the size of an atom and travel through the human body. Whatever aspect of science and technology interests you and your family you’ll be sure to be amazed and astounded as you enter a world of discovery at Thinktank Birmingham.
