There are 10 museums; we visited 5 over 2 days, and the boys loved it. They wanted to go back but we ran out of time.

Enginuity is great - VERY hands-on - a bit like Eureka but aimed at slightly older children, and not in Yorkshire, obviously!

Blist Hills Victorian Town is amazing - loads of 'explainers', and fun activities, and lots of space. The boys went to a Victorian school lesson - it was hysterical. They were absolutely terrified: thought they were going to get caned LOL.

AND it's all free for Blue Peter badge winners

Yes we've been, the dd's absolutely loved it. We went on 2 separate occasions coz like you say you run out of time, still haven't seen all of it. Like the fact that once you pay you can keep going back til you've seen everything. Agree, Victorian Town and Engenuity the best! Ironbridge town in very pleasant too, good for an icecream and a few piccies!!
