Group Visits

Thinktank redefines the concept of a science museum. Think of it more as a way to discover the world around you and the life you lead. From steam engines to intestines, this exciting museum has over 200 hands-on displays on science and technology including a digital Planetarium and outdoor Science Garden.

At Thinktank you will find four floors of hands-on exhibits and historical collections that will amaze and inspire you, showing you the science of the world all around us.

Using fulldome 360º technology the UK’s first purpose-built digital planetarium at Thinktank puts you right in the centre of the action. With a vibrant programme of shows and activities the planetarium at Thinktank will take you on an inspiring exploration of science, art, music and experimental film.
