We’ve only been to the Science Garden at the Think Tank A couple of times. We love it and are certainly planning on some return visits. The Thinktank is situated at Millennium Point in Birmingham. I love museums that are interactive and hands on. The science garden is certainly that and the children were totally engaged with it. It’s full of lots of learning activities (I’m guessing about 20). You could easily spend a couple of hours playing here. I especially loved this one where you pull, push, twist and move the balls around this crazy contraption. Part of it reminds me of a giant version of the game downfall.
Munashe absolutely loved the duck race, the super helpful staff had many races with him! Thank you!
We found balancing the balls on the water jets heaps of fun and a good challenge. You’ve got to love a bit of water play. On another thought, a change of clothes for your little ones may come in handy! Especially if they can’t resist a good splash!
What’s would you prefer on your car square wheels or round wheels?
There is even a giant hamster wheel which takes a good bit of energy to get moving. It’s tough being a hamster!!
We made a bridge from a load of blocks that weren’t stuck together, it held all of our weight. Good spot of engineering! Although I was kind of thankful it didn’t go over the real water.
So so on more practical matters, you can enter the science garden after paying to enter the Thinktank museum or wait till 3pm (weekdays) and go for absolutely free 🙂 Well worth a visit to engage those youngens in some fun scientific play!
Which are your favorite hands on museums that you would recommend?
