Cabaret Mechanical Marvels - automata exhibition
Visit St Albans Museum + Gallery's latest exhibition, Cabaret Mechanical Marvels.
Displaying a range of mechanical masterpieces, this touring exhibition from Cabaret Mechanical Theatre showcases work by some of the UK’s finest contemporary automata makers. Using cams and levers to make them move, automata often feature recognisable characters telling an amusing story. Visitors can simply press a button or turn a crank to make hand-carved wooden characters come to life. As an added bonus, every child to the exhibition gets an automata kit to make and take away.
The exhibition runs until 21 February 2021. The museum and gallery is open 11am - 5pm every day (except 24, 25, 26 December 2020 and 1 January 2021)
Children (5-16yrs): £2
Concessions (60+ or students with ID): £3
Under 5s, Carers, and Friends of St Albans Museums: Free
Booking ahead is recommended as numbers in the gallery are limited.
