In August we had a press visit from freelance journalist Adrian Gillan for Bent Magazine. Bent Magazine is a top national online gay magazine. He was writing a travel feature about Stratford upon Avon and wanted to include our MAD Museum.

Here is what Adrian kindly said about MAD:


“Fancy a few things absolutely – arguably well-nigh refreshingly – unconnected with Shakespeare? The MAD (Mechanical Art and Design) Museum is a fun, quirky and unique attraction, slap bang in the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon, housing around 60 interactive mechanical contraptions. Perfect for kids of all ages, including the adult kind, especially if you like art, design, science and/or engineering! Rolling ball machines, interactive light walls, 3D faces, giant rocking birds and so much more! Friendly staff!

In order to abide by the social distancing measures put forward by the government in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the museum is sadly CLOSED to the public until further notice. Please stay safe and we hope to see you again soon.
