About Organisation

The Heath Robinson Museum is a museum in Pinner, dedicated to the work of world-renowned artist, illustrator, cartoonist and social commentator William Heath Robinson. He became known as "The Gadget King" and the phrase "Heath Robinson" entered the dictionary for any ingenious but impractical device.

His work has inspired modern creatives such as Nick Park, Aardman, creator of Wallace and Gromit and Thomas Heatherwick, designer of the Olympic Cauldron and many more.

Our comprehensive learning packages for both museum visit and outreach are designed to be fun, creative and informative. Through interactive exploration of Heath Robinson's work, students will gain hands-on cross curricular knowledge, with a particular emphasis on creative thinking, invention, problem solving, developing ideas and stories.

In addition to school/college programmes there are art and craft workshops, please see the website for the current programme.

Would you like to meet new people, gain skills and have fun, while doing something really worthwhile for the community? Volunteer for the Museum. This is an excellent opportunity for work experience.

'Heath Robinson's drawings are like tiny films of a vanished time, caught in the amber of his exquisite draughtsmanship. We can smell them, taste them, feel their 19th century sunshine on our modern skins.' Manjula Padmanabhan, India's first woman cartoonist.
