A Grand Day Out at Bradford Industrial Museum

A free science-themed day at Bradford Industrial Museum is being held for families on May Bank Holiday Monday.

The museum’s annual ‘Grand Day Out’ event will feature family activities and presentations on the theme of science and technology in every day life – from work to entertainment.

Activities, running from 10-4pm on Monday 1 May, will include a workshop by Sublime Science explaining how science can seem like magic.

Zoolab’s animal rangers will also visit to explain the biology of plants and animals.  Children will be able to carry out experiments in the museum’s galleries and make models using principles of physics and chemistry.

There will be craft activities, trails, demonstrations and working machinery in the museum’s Victorian Spinning Mill, Motive Power Gallery and Blacksmith’s workshop.
