Museum of Science and Industry

We have a selection of activity packs to help educate and entertain our youngest visitors.

Baby Blanket Bags at MSI


Recommended for babies that don’t crawl yet

These soft, portable bags unfold into a blanket full of sensory objects for our very youngest visitors.


Recommended for babies that crawl but are not walking

Perfect for mini-adventurers, these baskets are filled with sensory objects that help little minds grow. Want to know more? Join one of our led sessions where members of our Explainer team will give you some insight into child development and how sensory play helps. Free drop-in sessions are available every Wednesday at 11.30 and every Saturday at 10.30.

Power Packs at MSI


Recommended for toddlers and young children

Especially for budding engineers and train drivers, these rucksacks have everything you need to ‘work’ in our Power Hall—oil our engines and don’t forget your train driver’s hat.

Steam, Sweat and Spinners

Daily at 14.00, Saturday 10 – Sunday 25 February 2018

This February half term, pick up a Power Pack from the front desk and join one of our Explainers at 14.00 in the Power Hall to explore the sights, smells and sounds of the museum's giant engines. This is a special guided session on how pretending and play can make the adventure even better for younger visitors.

Please not that there is only a limited number of Power Packs available.
