Stratford-upon-Avon and the Heart of England Sights



MAD Museum Review

Push buttons and pedals to your heart's content to make the two floors of the Museum of Mechanical Art and Design come alive. Witty, beautiful, and intricate automata and examples of kinetic art will clank, whirr, and rattle away. Marbles and Ping-Pong balls thread and bounce through looping runs, long metal arms give startling claps and a train chuffs around high up on the walls. There are outside sculptures, too, and a shop full of weird and wonderful things to buy.
