Get creative during family arts week this October half term and get creative with our family activities.
EVERY DAY 10am – 4pm
Every day throughout the holidays you can become a reporter with our ‘British Motoring Times’ family trail, explore the Museum and fill in the missing headlines. Or search high and low for the Museum cats and see find the colours of the Cats’ Eyes in our ‘Black Cat’ trail. You can also drop in to Learning Space 1 between 10am and 4pm to design your trick or treat mode of transport. Will it fly? Will it be spooky ? Will it be magic? Get creative and see what you can design.
Family Tours – 10.45am & 1.30pm
At 10.45am or 1.30pm join a family tour with our costumed explainers. At 10.45am you will either meet Bertha Benz and find out about her incredible journey in the first petrol driven car or John Carter our 1930s mechanic and find out what he knows about the earliest car. In the afternoon tour you will meet Jim our Bus Driver or Mavis our Clippie and find out about life working on their 1923 bus.

Family Crafts Keep creating and carry on British car making
To celebrate Family Arts Week get creative and build your own fantasy vehicle. You will begin by making a basic ‘car chassis’ out of paper cups which you can then customise using a selection of wheels and other materials.
