This summer curious minds of all ages are invited to step inside the whimsical and wonderful world of machines and cartoons created by eccentric English inventor Rowland Emett.
The quirky moving machines, or automata as they are known, includes items from the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, fantastical flying machines, and a bicycle for cycling across the moon. Many larger than life surprises will astound and spark the imagination.
This exhibition will be the biggest ever display of Emett’s work, which is loved by many across the world and will tell the story of his life living and working in Birmingham.
In the Gas Hall. Admission charges apply.
