What is included in a Thinktank Entry Ticket?

An entry wristband for Thinktank allows you to come and go from the museum throughout the day, giving you access to all our interactive museum galleries, Science Garden, plus our  Family Science Shows, Gallery Activities, Storytelling and daily Planetarium shows as well as many other free events that may be happening in and around the museum from time to time.

Please note that some special Workshops, Planetarium Events & Touring Exhibitions available in addition to our daily activities may sometimes incur a small additional charge, but these will always be clearly indicated on our website.


We'll always have room in the museum for all our visitors. But on wet days, and during Birmingham school holidays Thinktank's ticket desk can become very busy.

In order to avoid any queues, we recommend that you pre-book  online at least the day before your visit. (Advance ticket prices are 10% cheaper!) Bring your booking reference number, which can be found on your email confirmation, along to the museum entrance where we will issue you with the appropriate wristbands for the day. It is not possible to pre-book museum entry on-the-day of your visit, and as we use different wristbands daily, it is not possible to issue these in advance.

Discount vouchers must be redeemed in person at the museum and can not be pre booked online. Please visit our Ticket Desk on Level-2 of the Millennium Point building.
