The MAD Museum is an indoor attraction and offers something for the whole family!
Interact with eccentric artworks, contraptions and machines, build marble runs on our giant MAD Marbles wall*. Pick up one of our free family activity sheets and take part in our holiday competitions. Use our free craft facilities to sketch the exhibits on display and take as many videos and photos as you like.
*MAD Marbles wall temporarily not in operation due to COVID guidelines.
Mechanical art is loud, eccentric and interactive making it perfect for the kids! As well as being a lot of fun it subtly teaches kids about design, physics and maths.
