Thinktank, Birmingham Science Museum opened in 2001 at Millennium Point located near Curzon Street in Eastside, Birmingham. It replaced the previous Birmingham Museum of Science & Industry which was on Newhall Street in the Jewellery Quarter until 1997. Most of the contents were moved over such as the City of Birmingham locomotive, and the last remaining City tram from the network that closed in 1953. They also have Boulton & Watt's Smethwick Engine inside. The Thinktank Science Garden opened in 2012 with the completion of Eastside City Park.
