Strafford on Avon and the MAD museum.

Hi sorry I haven’t written for a while, In all honesty I haven’t had much to write. With summer on its way I thought some of you might be already looking for ideas to put on the summer plan – so here is one of my suggestions. If your children like Marbles then you may want to hear about this little Museum in Strafford. In short both boys are marble obsessed, so when I saw a leaflet for here and you could use Tesco vouchers at the MAD Museum I thought we would check it out combine with a visit to Strafford for the day.

It was worth a visit as in the boys opinion the MAD museum in Strafford on Avon was the best museum Ever!

We parked in the Park and ride, taking the bus into Strafford to avoid struggling with parking this was easy and good value.

The MAD museum is a small museum, however we did manage to wasted a couple of hours inside. Advertised as a mechanical Art and Design museum, with over 90 pieces of kinetic Art. In short our version of the museum there are several very interesting and large marble runs, with lots of buttons to push. Plus a area where you can build a marble run of your own which the boys enjoyed the challenge. It wasn’t quite what I expected from the advertising, I personally expected a bit more variety of what was on offer. However the boys were happy so I was happy, even if it was not quite what I believed it would be.

The boys would of stay longer, however Mummy and daddy were marbled out! There is only so long you can look at and play with Marbles!

We combined our visit with a lovely walk along the river, a coffee and a trip across the river on the oldest chain ferry. The day worked out as a fairly cheap day out, Free tickets for the museum via Tesco, park and ride, coffee/ Ice cream and a free walk.IMG_1220IMG_1223.JPG
