Green light for Thinktank as plans made for May re-opening

Solihull Editorial 16th Apr, 2021   0

PLANS have beeen announced to re-open Thinktank, Birmingham’s award-winning science museum, for the first time since closing in March 2020.

Visitors will once again be able to visit Thinktank and explore a world of wonder through impressive exhibits and historical collections from Saturday, May 29, coinciding with the May half-term holiday. Tickets will go on sale on May 6.

As Thinktank reopens, every precaution has been taken to make the experience safe and enjoyable.

To ensure people can keep a safe distance from each other, capacity will be limited and all visitors including members will need to pre-book a timed ticket in advance.

Laurence Butler, the museum’s manager said: “We’re delighted to be able to confirm Thinktank’s re-opening date and are very much looking forward to welcoming people through our doors once again to ignite their curiosity.

“While preparations are already underway to allow for a safe and enjoyable visit we’ve also been making some exciting changes to the museum which we can’t wait to share. For now, please put May 29 in your diary – that’s the date we re-open!”

Full information and booking will be available on the Thinktank website at
