After more than 12 months in development, the National Railway Museum’s largest ever family-focused visitor experience, Wonderlab: The Bramall Gallery is officially set to open this summer.

Wonderlab: The Bramall Gallery will be the first part of the museum’s wider masterplan to be completed.

Built inside the 1,500 square metre former locomotive workshop building next to Great Hall, Wonderlab: The Bramall Gallery is equivalent in size to an Olympic swimming pool. Designed by De Matos Ryan, the space will feature 18 interactive exhibits with an engineering, science and railway theme that have been sensitively installed around several original workshop features.

The eagerly awaited exhibition is set to open on Thursday 27 July in time for the summer holidays.

The first tickets are now available via the museum website and, to celebrate, residents of York can upgrade their day ticket to an annual visitor pass for no extra charge (subject to terms and conditions) until 3 September 2023.
