Thinktank is a unique experience of science and history designed to bring knowledge alive whatever your age! With over 200 hands-on displays you and your family are able to discover science and technology from the past, present and future. With our 360° domed ceiling we are able to display our very own digital planetarium, allowing you to float through the galaxy and explore the night sky with breath-taking clarity.

Thinktank is about us, our world and the way we live in it. Our ten fresh and innovative galleries allow you to explore freely, adding your own experiences and getting interactive with the exhibits on your way. The whole gallery is designed to bring knowledge alive, making the past, present and future of science and technology amazing and exciting for all.

Our exciting daily programme of entertaining shows, astronomy classes, activities and lectures, will take you on a stimulating exploration of the night sky, our galaxy and beyond using our very own digital planetarium, powered by Digistar 3, the world’s most advanced digital planetarium projection system. Our 360°domed ceiling immerses the audience in an awesome, high resolution experience.

The IMAX is part of one the country’s most thrilling visitor attractions, right in the heart of Birmingham. For excitement, scale and sheer sensory overload nothing comes close to the IMAX experience. With a screen as high as a five storey building and as wide as four buses nose to tail, 2D presentations are fantastic, but the special 3D films will have people reaching out to touch the images on the screen. The crystal clear picture and 42 speakers of digital surround sound ensure a truly entrancing experience.

By road: Millennium Point is located three miles from Junction 6 of the M6, 9 miles from Junction 3 of the M5 and 11 miles from Junction 6 of the M42. Millennium Point will be signed from these junctions. Secure parking is available on site.
