Attraction Information

Rev up your engine and zoom down to the British Motor Museum. It’s got the largest collection of historic British cars in the world (!) and all sorts of activities for motor-mad kids.

There’s no room for itchy feet with activity sheets, interactive gaming screens and the chance to get behind the wheel of a classic car. While you travel through themed zones look out for the interactive tabletops where kids can play with toy cars, or the Sports Car section where you can dress up in replica 60’s gear and take a pose.

With a free guided tour see more than one million objects on display, while kids can get properly hands-on in the Under the Skin zone where the insides of a car are laid bare. Then polish it all off by taking to the sea on an outdoor galleon ship climbing frame.

  • Interactive activities, including weekend events
  • Tabletops games and a climbing frame
  • Dress up!
