The Heath Robinson Museum is for students of illustration, lovers of landscape paintings, advertising enthusiasts and academics, dads building contraptions in sheds, believers in fairies, children with time to dream, couples stuck in tiny flats, people who put holes in cheese, artificial teeth testers and anyone who’s ever held something together with a bit of string.
‘He’s an artist for everybody, for all ages of people. It’s very accessible in the way that you think “I could do something like that.” He is someone terribly important, and he needs a museum.’
- Michael Rosen, former Children’s Laureate, who was brought up in Pinner
‘Heath Robinson's drawings are like tiny films of a vanished time, caught in the amber of his exquisite draughtsmanship. We can smell them, taste them, feel their 19th century sunshine on our modern skins.’
- Manjula Padmanabhan, India’s first woman cartoonist and creator of SUKI-YAKI in India's Business Line
Thank you to our 14-year old volunteer Zain Ahmed for his film of the Grand Opening of the Museum on 15th October 2016.
