Enginuity is the tenth in the series of Ironbridge Gorge Museums and opened in 2002 to acclaim and cries of amazement. Enginuity is a design and technology centre that lets you and your family become apprentice engineers for a while. The museum is split into four 'zones' - Materials, Energy, Design, and Systems & Controls where you can find out how everyday objects work by looking inside them. You'll use the latest technology to move a simulated x-ray machine over objects such as an electric guitar, a mobile phone and a teddy bear. You'll experiment with gadgets and gizmos used to design things we see and use everyday. This is your opportnity to fulfil a childhood dream and pull a real 5-ton locomotive. You can even control the flow of water to generate electricity or flood the surrounding villages and you pitch your wits against the speed and accuracy of a robotic arm.

The museum also holds an array of weird and wonderful activities throughout the year. Previous events have included puppet designing and constructing and launching rocket-propelled witches! At Enginuity you will discover a wealth of innovative ideas, activities and exhibitions to amuse and challenge all visitors who are young-at-heart.
