STEAM Museum


The Brick Cafe will be open to all visitors throughout the day in the marquee connected to the main Events Hall serving tea, coffee and soft drinks as well as sandwiches, hot and cold snacks and other light bites to keep you refreshed. There’s plenty of choice and seating for you to take a rest.

Tea, coffee, cold drinks and other light refreshments are also available from the cafe kiosk in the main hall itself and from the Station Buffet on the first floor. Just take the stairs up from the entrance hall of the museum.

There are also several other places nearby that you can visit. These include the Food Court in the Designer Outlet shopping centre next door or the many cafes and restaurants in the town centre. Please retain your admission ticket to STEAM as it allows you leave and re-enter the museum on the same day.
