Steam, Sweat and Spinners at Museum of Science and Industry, Castlefield, 11–26 February 2017, free entry - Visit now

Come rain or shine, if you have just half an hour or an entire day, there is always something to see, experiment with, make, watch,  do and inspire at this museum dedicated to ideas that have shaped our world.

This half term it’s all about Victorian endeavour so get your long starchy white shirt sleeves rolled up and get involved in storytelling, “Goo in the Loo” and magic lantern workshops, Victorian sing a longs and photo booth, stonking steam engines and trips on the world’s oldest surviving passenger railway.

We love the interactive shows and workshops by the ingenious and friendly explainer team and also, quite frankly, any chance to find out more and celebrate how Manchester’s scientific enterprises kick started the modern world (and continue to change it in so many ways). Don’t forget some hard-earned pennies for the Victorian fair.
