The British Motor Museum in Warwickshire is inviting families to help celebrate the 100th birthday of the Austin Seven from 22 July to 5 September. Visitors can uncover this iconic little car’s history and explore the new exhibition ‘Small car. Big history: 100 years of the Austin Seven’. Plus they can have fun with the new interactive exhibits, meet the Austin Adventurers for a family tour and complete their visit by making an Austin Seven to take home.
The new exhibition is a celebration of this small car that made a big impact on Britain’s motoring history. The Austin Adventurers Family Tour takes place every day at 11.30am when families can meet Adventure Annie and explorer Dr Edmund Deadrock to discover the stories of the cars in the collection that have been on exciting expeditions. The Austin Seven Jigsaw Trail runs all day, every day for children to create their own Austin Seven. They can pick up a jigsaw and explore the Museum to find the different pieces. Children can also make their own cardboard cut-out of an Austin Seven with lots of colours and decorations to choose from.
