Birmingham Thinktank; Teen Takeover

Each year, Birmingham Thinktank offers FREE entry to children, 13-19 years, as part of the Kids In Museums Takeover Day that takes places every November. Those age 13-16 years can visit the museum unaccompanied too if an adult has completed an under 16’s registration form.

Top Tips for Birmingham Thinktank

1. Make use of the cloakroom located close the Thinktank entrance.  Whilst this is an unsupervised area, it does offer an area to store non-valuable items.  The cloakroom is free to use on quieter days although there maybe a small charge at peak times.

2. There are a number of lockers available for use located by the indoor water play area on level 2.  You will need a, (refundable) £1 coin to operate the lockers that provide ample space for picnics & bulky belongings.

3. Picnics are welcome at Birmingham Thinktank where they provide an extensive indoor lunch area on level zero for your convenience.

4. Worth packing some spare clothing for this setting as there are both indoor & outdoor water play features that most children quickly make a beeline for.

5. The Planetarium is included without your ticket price & can become full quite quickly on busy days.  Worth checking out the times of the  planetarium shows and making your way to the area prior to show start times to avoid disappointment.

6. Remember that the Science Garden is open to the public for FREE from 3pm each day.

    I have visited previously and the group of children I brought ,loved their experience. I am now looking to bring a different group so would like these questions answered, thanks.
    I want to bring a young person in a wheel chair. Are all areas accessible by wheel chair? Have you got disabled changing facilities with a hoist for lifting ?

    Regards
    Val

    • Hi Val, I have to agree, I’m a big fan of Birmingham Thinktank too. Just to let you know that Topdogdays is independent of Birmingham Thinktank, (we simply let you know where the deals are), but you can find more details regarding accessibility over at Birmingham Thinktank if you download their Access Statement.

    I took my two eldest boys to The Think Tank probably 10 years ago…. we had an amazing day out. I am taking my youngest tomorrow and I just hope he enjoys it as much.

    • Hi Hillary, I have to say I’ve always found the Think Tank to be a winner every time so hope you have a good day tomorrow. Do let us know how you get on & look out for the outdoor science garden too that is now part of the Think Tank too.

  3. Please keep me updated on thinktank offers.
