Mechanical Art & Design Museum (MAD)

The MAD (Mechanical Art and Design) Museum is the only specialist attraction of its kind in the UK. Based in Stratford upon Avon, the museum was launched in March 2012 and showcases the world's finest pieces of Kinetic Art and Automata from pioneering artists from all four corners of the globe.

MAD is a celebration of all things mechanically weird and wonderful. Similar to some of the contraptions seen in Wallace and Gromit, Scrapheap Challenge and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Kinetic Art and Automata are well respected and recognised but not generally understood.

At The MAD Museum we ask visitors to interact with the exhibits, to examine the intricate workings and decipher how they operate. Some of our exhibits have a purpose but most of them just function for the fun of it.  The MAD Museum is a fantastic playground for adults and a perfect hideout for inquisitive kids - experience the imagination of marvellous minds.
