The British Motor Museum is inviting families to explore nature in its car collection this summer from 22 July to 2 September. Many car designers and engineers have taken inspiration from nature, and families can explore these fun facts with a ‘nature trail’ to seek out all that blooms, squawks and roars in the Museum.
Along the way they may bump into Adventure ‘Annie’ or ‘Alex’, the enthusiastic costumed explainers, and learn all about the cars that have been on jungle adventures and travelled across exciting parts of the world.
Visitors can also visit the new exhibition, ‘Factor us in’, which opens on 22 July and uncovers the fascinating stories behind the motor industry and the people who worked and lived around it.
Younger visitors are invited to collect a cut-out model Land Rover to take home and make, then colour, paint, or even restyle with recycled materials. Those not able to visit the Museum can still join in with the activities online with ideas of things to make and do, as well as test their knowledge about the collection.
The Museum will be open 7 days a week from 16 July to 2 September from 10am to 5pm with limited numbers per day. Pre-booking is essential for all visitors including those returning with an annual pass. There are 10am, 11am, 12noon and 1pm arrival slots available and once at the Museum visitors can stay as long as they wish until closing.
All activities are included in the Museum admission prices and are suitable for 4+years with adult supervision. 2021 admission prices are: Adults £14.50, Concessions £12.50, Children £9 (5-16 years), under 5’s free, and a Family ticket £40 (2 adults & up to 3 children). If you Gift Aid or donate your entrance fee you receive an annual pass at no extra cost.
