Fodor's Expert Review Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum
This interactive museum in the state-of-the-art Millennium Point Center allows kids to explore science and the history of Birmingham over four floors of galleries. Mini-Brum, an interactive gallery for under-eights, is hugely popular, while older kids will love exploring deep space in the planetarium (an extra £2.50 on the admission price). When the weather is nice, head outdoors to the play area and the Science Garden. The museum is a 10-minute walk from Moor Street railway station or a 15-minute walk from Birmingham New Street.
