Machine Makers Exhibition at MOTAT

Event Details

Every day we interact with incredible machines and feats of engineering that make our lives easier.

Machine Makers is an immersive exhibition at MOTAT showcasing the fundamentals of engineering by examining the six simple machines: the building blocks for more complex inventions.

This engaging exhibition features six big simple machines for visitors to try for themselves. Take a hands-on approach to learning and uncover the physics behind each simple machine.

See amazing examples from MOTAT’s collection of complex machines – things made of two or more simple machines.

With all this inspiration, apply your newfound knowledge and get stuck into making your own creations in the Machine MakersLab.

MOTAT is open every day in summer, except for Christmas Day when it is closed.

Machine Makers exhibition is on until 27 April 2020.

Recommended for kids aged 8 to 12 years old.
