Visit The Museum of Science and Industry for a family day out with a difference. From sensory play to spectacular shows, interactive hands-on activities and more, there’s something for all ages to enjoy.

Prepare for an amazing and entertaining family day out filled with interactive shows, lively demonstrations and of course, a bit of good old fashioned dressing up.

Our fantastic team of Explainers will help you get the most out of your visit. Join them for fast paced family shows and entertaining demonstrations of our historic steam engines and textile machinery.

Can you lift a Mini? Could you shake hands with yourself? Or make a tornado? Try all of this and more in Experiment! – a gallery full of interactive, hands-on activities to keep kids (and their grown-ups) entertained. 

If you’re visiting at the weekend or during the school holidays, there are extra shows and hands-on workshops for everyone to enjoy. These are all listed on our website.

If you’re visiting with little ones, ask a member of staff about our fun resources and dedicated areas that have been created for 0 - 4 year olds.

Keep the kids entertained and buy them a guidebook. It’s packed with puzzles, games and fun facts to help them get more out of their visit.

We’ve got baby changing facilities across our site, and a special children’s menu in our Bistro.  We also have a family picnic area.
