Exhibits and activities that will fire up your imagination.

We all have a creative side. Scientists, engineers and inventors use their imagination, tools and materials to solve life’s big problems. Now it’s your turn to get creative and see what you can create and solve.

Get hands-on in the Creativity Zone, with a range of interactive exhibits. Solve challenges, make objects move on our spinning table and marvel at inspirational creations featured on our LEGO® wall. Don’t forget to capture the fun and share your self-portrait at the selfie booth!

Accessibility information

Creativity Zone has a range of exhibits which are designed to move, make a noise or light up. Most of these are screen based, and some show moving colourful patterns.

This area is near to the entrance so can get quite busy at the start of the day. Some of the activities can be quite loud, particularly the jukebox. Ear defenders are available from reception for a refundable deposit.

Inside Creativity Zone, there is a LEGO® Wall. This shows inventions and historical moments made in LEGO®, like Stephenson’s Rocket train or a Metro carriage! These models are behind a glass screen, so cannot be touched or played with.

‘Spinning tables were brilliant and the children loved the huge fan!’

Emma, visitor. 

‘The creative zone is a great opportunity for kids to explore and be themselves.’

Michael, visitor. 

We had lots of fun in the Creative Zone.
