Head to the Science and Industry Museum for free hands-on activities, creative challenges and live demonstrations this May half term.

Get busy with BeeBots for an introduction to programming and play with CHiP the robot dog.

Explore the new display – Stephen Hawking at Work – for an introduction to Hawking’s life and work. As always, the museum’s Explainers will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Enjoy family favourites in the free permanent galleries and displays, and add a ticket to Power UP to play the very best video games from the past five decades.

Always a great day out, there’s fun for even the youngest visitors at the Science and Industry museum.
