New venue for the MAD museum

Date Posted: 08/10/2013

The MAD (Mechanical Art & Design) Museum in Stratford-upon-Avon is to relocate from Sheep Street to Henley Street, reopening on the 26th October.

The move presents a larger and more accessible location for visitors to enjoy the quirky museum attraction, which has welcomed over 30,000 visitors through its doors since opening in March 2012.

School groups can looks forward to more wacky contraptions as a wider and more diverse assortment of mechanical art is displayed at the new venue.

As well as showcasing old favourites and crowd pleasers, the museum will display a new range of exciting exhibits, enabling visitors to experience and interact with fascinating machines, gadgets and gismos.

The MAD Museum’s founder, Richard Simmons, said: “The success of the museum over the last 18 months has been phenomenal and as a result we felt that we had already outgrown the current location.

“We are always coming up with new ideas and looking for new pieces to exhibit, and now we have a bigger space, we aim to cram it full to bursting with the best that kinetic art and automata can offer.”

School trip organisers booking a visit to the MAD Museum for ten or more people can take advantage of discounted rates.
