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. They can see a triceratops skull, watch giant steam engines at work, or explore deep space in the planetarium (an extra £1.50 on the admission price). When the weather is nice, head outdoors to the Free Kids’ Park and the Science Garden. The museum is a 10-minute walk from Moor Street railway station.
