Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

Stay safe, stay at home! There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Description :

Can you help us make music with carrots? Or a game controller with playdoh?

In this workshop, we'll be playing with an ingenious little device called Makey Makey that allows us to connect everyday items to a computer! BUT do they conduct enough electricity to allow us to make music?

We'll be experimenting with lots of everyday items from fab fruits to funky furniture to see how well they conduct electricity.

This is a lively science and computing based workshop for younger children. It's fun and teaches the principles of circuits, resistance and conductivity.  

This workshop is aimed at children aged seven and up and is ideal for children at the KS2 level. 

The fee is £10 per participant in this workshop. For every full-price participant, you can bring another for half price!

For participants under the age of 14, we require an accompanying adult to attend the workshop alongside them. Accompanying adult tickets can be purchased for the normal museum entry price of £9.


Although the booking is for a specific time slot, entry to the Centre is permitted all day.  The Centre is open from 10am to 5pm.

Tea, coffee and snacks will be available from our Pac Lunch Shop.
