During our family day: 150th Anniversary celebrations of Heath Robinson’s birth, our star attraction is internet/media sensation, Joseph Herscher of www.josephsmachines fame. Joseph will talk about his “Heath Robinson” machines and run a workshop outdoors for families/children; who will be challenged to build their own machine (out of junk) and culminate in attempts to connect all the machines in one long transfer of energy to achieve a simple task.

Families are encouraged to book as a group to work together on their own machine (up to 4 members – family ticket £16) or individuals can book for £5 each who will be allocated into a group of 3-5. Recommended age of 8yrs to 108yrs.

If you wish to be in the same group as someone else please book all tickets in one booking.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT WILL BE POTENTIALLY PHOTOGRAPHED OR FILMED BY THE MUSEUM AND THE MEDIA.
