  • This is next door to the iron museum. It is a hands-on experience exploring various aspects of science and engineering. There was an area for young children but generally I would say it was aimed at t...  read more »

  • Private party of 70 taken to Enginuity by a corporate vendor. Had a great evening looking round followed by a delicious dinner and country dancing. Enjoyed very much 
  • Having never been before and having a 12 month pass for the different Ironbridge exhibits we decided to attend with our 14 month old and 4 year old. The only thing there for our 14 month old was a soft play area for under 4's. Unfortunately, there was quite a few big kids in there meaning it wasn't available for him. The 4 year old did have a good time, although a lot a of the experiments don't have a good explanation on them of what is going on. Luckily I knew enough to explain things to her but if parents didn't know about science or engineering the kids might not fully understand it. There is a lab upstairs but it appeared closed off and only for certain groups which was shame, my 4 year old daughter would have loved the 3d printing etc. They have machines that you can point at question marks and it tells you information, but it is hard to hear over the noise of kids running around. With the amount of things to scan and length of time to here about each item I could see it being a bottleneck for people waiting to use them. Free wifi and QR codes or NFC tags on each exhibit would really benefit here. My daughter wanted to go into the back room where they do crafts and in this instance they were doing "build yourself a clock" for £3. She had a great time making herself a clock face and then they put the actual clock and hands on the plate. It's not kept time at all and is about 11 hours behind in the 2 days since we've been. New batteries are probably needed. There was a lot of work going on there at the time, they are obviously building something new but no idea what. Staff inside where very friendly and great with the kids. Ultimately, it's for the kids and she did have a good time there and loves her ninja turtle clock. We will go back at some point. Visited June 2016
  • I visited yesterday and was very disappointed. For starters the parking machine was out of order which mean a walk to across to another car park and then back to the car and then back past the same ticket machine, this was the start of things to come as going around there were 4 of the few activities 'Out of order' which meant we probably paid for things we were unable to try. I would of liked to have complained and show the photo's of the 'Out of order' activities but it does not seem there is anywhere/anyone to contact. Disappointed! :(
  • Great place for a day out with the family. It's suitable for kids of all ages and adults too for boys and girls as there's something to interest everyone here.
  • A great place for kids to spend a few hours .. the building adjacent to it is worth sticking your head in its an amazing building .
  • Brilliant day out. Kids love it there with loads of interactive activities to keep them occupied.
