There were also miniature, 4in tall, remote control Antweight fighting robots, battling it out live in their own arena.
Daleks and K9, both of Dr Who fame, roamed the museum interacting with guests.
Visitors also had a go at driving a robot in a game of football against friends and family.
Organiser Alan Young, of Robots Live Ltd, said: "It was a great day and a lot of fun. I think it's safe to say the Daleks stole the show.
"Youngsters particularly enjoyed taking on their dads in some of the head-to-head games.
"We normally stage big arena events but this was a chance for people to get up close and personal with the robots and the people who built them."
