Summer Season of fun at the Museum of Science and Industry at Science and Industry Museum, Castlefield, 20 July–1 September 2019, free entry - Visit now

Round up the family tree and make your way to the Science and Industry Museum for the Summer Season of Fun, a range of hands-on workshops and super activities. Suitable for all ages, many of the activities are free, and with plenty to get involved with, we can’t think of a better way to occupy those young minds over the long summer holidays.

The sun really has got his hat on this summer at the Science and Industry Museum.

With family shows a-plenty there’s something for everybody at the Summer Season of Fun. Enjoy surprising science with an experiment packed Science Showdown – this interactive family show will try to answer all of your ‘burning’ questions about the sun. Go back in time to the working mills of 150 years ago with one of the daily Textiles Demonstrations. Step into the shoes of a mill-worker and experience the sights and thunderous sounds of the Textiles Mills during one of the historic machinery demonstrations.

We can’t think of a better way to occupy those young minds over the long summer holidays.

Keen mini gardeners can get their green fingers dirty as they discover the science behind seeds and the power of the sun – they will even get the chance to plant their own mystery seed to take home. And those experimental fashionistas will get to make their own colour-changing accessory and then watch it transform under the powerful UV light of the sun.

Younger children (and their grown-ups) can join a unique free storytelling adventure – find yourselves transported from stellar nurseries to glittering galaxies – as you learn about the life of a star.

Whatever the weather, the sun really has got his hat on this summer at the Science and Industry Museum. Hip hip Hooray!
