Visitors interested in scientific and industrial history should not be discouraged by the child-focused website. There are many fascinating and historically important exhibits on display, including the 1779 Smethwick Engine built by Boulton & Watt, and examples of machines which made Birmingham the first centre of mass-produced metallic consumer goods.
