Year 2 Day Trip
This event will take place between 9:00am and 3:30pm on 13/11/2019.
Year two trip to the MAD Museum.
What is The MAD Museum?
In a Snapshot…The MAD Museum does what it says on the tin! Based in the centre of Stratford upon Avon, this quirky attraction displays interactive pieces of mechanical art, in particular; kinetic art and automata.
“MAD” stands for Mechanical Art and Design.
If you’re not quite sure what mechanical art is all about, think of the machines and gizmos used in Wallace and Gromit, Scrapheap Challenge and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
In a nutshell, mechanical art is usually beautifully crafted, moving sculptures either made to have an exaggerated purpose or made simply for the fun of it.
