Experitots at Science and Industry Museum, Castlefield 19 January — 23 March 2023 Entrance is free — Book now

Children under 5 and their grownups are invited to Experitots at the Science and Industry Museum, with the last Experitots session running from 10-11.30am on 23 March 2023. These fun, musical, once-a-month sessions are part of the magical, multi-sensory exhibition, Turn It Up: The power of music, which is an interactive experience exploring the science behind why music has a mysterious hold over us, and how the sounds of music drive us to create, perform, feel and share. Turn It Up: The Power of Music is filled with fun for adults and children alike, as it boasts a brand-new musical playground, packed with melodies, games and of course – SCIENCE!

There’s so much fun to be had at Experitots at the Science and Industry Museum and for those of you not sure where to start, the friendly Explainer team will be on hand all day to help you explore the exhibition. At certain times throughout the morning you can join the clever and very creative Explainers for 20 minutes of songs, play and multi-sensory fun and games, along with all sorts of additional activities available for you and your child, all aimed at younger children, from tiny babies, to toddlers, to 5-year-olds.

Experitots sessions at the Science and Industry Museum are relaxed and accessible, providing young people and their parents/carers with a safe, warm environment to play and listen to music together, while making some delightful memories at the same time!

Tickets can be booked online or in advance at the museum. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. These sessions are popular so we recommend you book your place fast!
