The building itself comes from the block work recovered from the cathedral collapse in 1850. TimeMachineFun, a museum with a difference, you get to explore and interact with the exhibits, which are experiments. On display we have a variety of weird and wonderful technology, demonstrating how science and engineering has totally changed the society we all enjoy. Instead of just looking at the exhibits from a distance we have a hands-on approach where we open items up, take them apart and explore the science and engineering inside.
