Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust
Shropshire TF8 7DQ
Enginuity is a design and technology centre and one of the ten award-winning museums at the famous Ironbridge Gorge UNESCO World Heritage Site in Shropshire, England. The buildings may look old but the technology inside is right up to the minute.
The museum is split into four 'zones' - Materials, Energy, Design, and Systems & Controls. Visitors can become apprentice engineers for a while as they look inside everyday objects to learn how they work. They can 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.
This museum, full of fun hands-on activities and interactive exhibits, is a family favourite delighting young and old alike. Visitors get to experiment with gadgets and gizmos used to design things we see and use every day.
During school holidays the museum holds and array of weird and wonderful activities for budding engineers. Check the Ironbridge Museum’s Events page at Web: Ironbridge/ Whats On
