The MAD Museum

MAD stands for mechanical art & design. A highly interactive attraction based in the delightful Stratford-Upon-Avon, we are proud to be the UK’s only permanent museum of mechanical art. 

MAD is perfect for a school visit that looks to incorporate learning of the STEAM Subjects – Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Maths. The museum encourages pupils to interact, examine and be inspired by the one-off inventions on display. From giant mesmerising marble runs, to giant mechanical birds, MAD is crammed full of ingenious, creative engineering.

Our £5 per pupil ticket not only provides entry into the museum, but also complimentary teacher resources, activity packs for pupils, free recce visits for 2 teachers, as well as further discounts on our brilliant Timbertech automata kits.

Free Teacher’s Resources – Resources for before, during and after a trip to MAD. Lesson plans, explanations, facts and tips which all support the national curriculum.

Cam Automata & Linkages Kits – Support your topic and a trip to MAD with a classroom activity. Build a choice of 3 different mechanisms with these easy-to-follow construction kits.

Activity Packs – Engaging educational activity packs for learners to carry out during and after their visit to The MAD Museum.  Whilst supporting the curriculum, they also encourage learners to design, describe and think outside the box.

Free Teacher Recces – Teachers and group organisers are encouraged to carry out complimentary familiarisation visits at our MAD Museum. Come and see how for yourself how your pupils would benefit from a trip to MAD.
