The MAD MUSEUM in Stratford

Despite only being open a year, The MAD (Mechanical Art & Design) Museum has already become one of Stratford upon Avon’s most popular attractions. This one-of-a-kind museum showcases Kinetic Art and Automata from pioneering artists all around the world.

Bursting with weird and wonderful contraptions, the machines at the museum range from dancing laser light devices and clever robots to quirky clocks and roaring mechanical dinosaurs. Think Heath Robinson mixed with Scrapheap Challenge; the MAD museum houses an exciting assortment of exhibits which are superbly engaging for all ages.

Immerse yourself in a crazy and colourful world of whirling, clanking, robotic and rolling ball machines, which give children and adults alike, a fascinating insight into inspirational creativity and physics in action.

Open 7 days a week (opening times vary depending on season), for more information please visit
