Science and Industry Museum (Days Out and Activities for Disabled Children and Families)


The Science and Industry Museum is full of amazing objects and world changing ideas.

Be inspired by the wonder of science. Look out for our expert Explainers around the museum doing live experiments, revealing more about our collection and sharing amazing stories behind our historic site. 

Get hands on in Experiment, a free family friendly interactive gallery. Roll up your sleeves and have a go at lifting a real Mini car up a wall using a simple gear system or watch bubbles rising through giant columns of coloured liquid.
