  • This place needs to shut for a couple of weeks and get everything sorted. I have no doubt when it first opened it was great when everything worked. Where do i start. red laser to make music wasnt ther...  read more »
  • A good entertaining visit with exhibits varying from steam engines to body parts. Well worth a couple of hours. Could do with a little bit of maintenance though. 
  • Took my 3 n 12 year old n had a fantastic day out. Got a free tour as part of a promotion however would have happily paid for it as the kids loved it. Educational n enjoyment. Great day out. 
  • Think-tank take note of what your visitors are saying. Your charging high admissions prices whilst slowly more and more displays are becoming broken and non functional. Start using some of the money your bringing in to fix these exhibitions or lower your prices. You won't keep many returning visitors at this rate and sadly with internet reviews being at the tip of the world's fingers these negative vists will be noted. You have what could be a truly marvellous day out for all ages. Please start ploughing some money back into the Think-tank !! We will return if you get some more exhibitions up and running again !!
  • Smashing day out! Shame they removed the spitfire but there's loads for the kids to do plus the adults won't be deterred by the price. Lots of school trips come down and it can get quite busy and noisy. Good disabled access and varied amusements for different ages/abilities.
  • Great science museum and plenty to do for children of all ages. Each of the floors are set out well with different themes; engineering, body, technology, space etc. Cafes are OK and the garden is a wonderful place which is filled with more for children to play with and learn. There is an optional planetarium with shows that are updated. Well worth the extra pound for the experience. For younger children the pretend / dress up area is a time vacuum.
  • Awesome experience. Very kids-oriented, but as adult I enjoyed even more than a kid. Very very educational but fun at the same time. Great price. 100% recommended, with kids or not. The best thing to do in Birmingham.
  • Some really interesting displays & great science learning for children. Well worth a visit. Pity the cinema is no longer there but it's been replaced by a planetarium.
