Thinktank Science Museum

Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum is a science museum opened in 2001. On four floors you can find over 200 exhibits. The exhibitions are divided thematically into past, present and future. The exhibits include a collection of steam engines, of which the oldest model dates from 1784, antique cars, locomotives and trams. You can also see the world's first electricity generator, used in industry, called the Woolrich generator.

The museum also houses a planetarium. It was the first planetarium in Birmingham. It has 70 seats and the projection dome measures 10 meters in diameter. Films about space, the night sky, the human body and underwater explorations are shown here. The planetarium organizes music and light shows.

The last significant element of Thinktank is The Science Garden, located in front of the museum building. It is an interactive outdoor space with over 30 exhibits.
