Attraction in Telford, Shropshire
At Enginuity you can turn the wheels of your imagination, test your horse power and discover how good ideas are turned in to real things.
Enginuity is the tenth in the series of Ironbridge Gorge Museums and opened in 2002 to acclaim and cries of amazement. Enginuity is a design and technology centre that lets you and your family become apprentice engineers for a while. The museum is split into four 'zones' - Materials, Energy, Design, and Systems & Controls where you can find out how everyday objects work by looking inside them. You'll use the latest technology to move a simulated x-ray machine over objects such as an electric guitar, a mobile phone and a teddy bear. You'll experiment with gadgets and gizmos used to design things we see and use everyday. This is your opportnity to fulfil a childhood dream and pull a real 5-ton locomotive. You can even control the flow of water to generate electricity or flood the surrounding villages and you pitch your wits against the speed and accuracy of a robotic arm.
The museum also holds an array of weird and wonderful activities throughout the year. Previous events have included puppet designing and constructing and launching rocket-propelled witches! At Enginuity you will discover a wealth of innovative ideas, activities and exhibitions to amuse and challenge all visitors who are young-at-heart.
