Discover machines of all shapes and sizes and be inspired by the Science and Industry Museum‘s brand-new moving display, A Quiet Afternoon in the Cloud Cuckoo Valley.
The display tells the story of a train journey through a beautiful valley. A must-see for train enthusiasts, big and small.
It’s an incredibly detailed moving sculpture. It’s also part of the largest artwork ever created by the artist, cartoonist and engineer Rowland Emett.
Visit the museum and see this stunning machine in action. You can watch the scene come to life at one of the daily demonstrations.
Older children can discover more about the science behind some of their favourite machines. They can also create a simple wind-up toy, from recyclable materials, to take home with them. And, of course, the Museum’s friendly ‘Explainers’ will be there to answer everyone’s questions too.
