Little car enthusiasts will love exploring transport of the past at Lakeland Motor Museum.
From futuristic vehicles to those of the 80’s there’s plenty to discover. Pop by the 1930’s garage or take a look at what’s on offer at the street scenes, from an old fashioned toy shop to a bookstore perfect for bookworms, it will be hard to decide what to look at first. Kids will get "wheely" excited as they discover the ancient bicycle collection or see how their favourite pedal cars have changed over the years.
You can even grab a fun quiz at reception and explore the museum that way. From easy to tricky questions they will love searching the museum for clues and answers, all in a bid to win a gold medal at the end. Stop by the riverside terrace to enjoy the stunning scenic views and grab something refreshing from the cafe.

Arrived at the museum, paid our entry fee, which I thought was reasonable, £8.50 for an adult, £5.00 for a child, the children were given a quiz booklet, a quick read of what they had to do , and they were off, scurrying around the rooms looking for clues, leaving me time to slowly wander around and enjoy the displays, I particularly enjoyed the cycles and motorcycles, loved the Jaguar ss100. On completion of our tour, the children had completed their quiz booklets ( great idea for the younger tourists) and needed to have them checked to receive their medals, which they wore with pride. A really good attraction, which I will visit again.

Interesting for adults. Thought my boy (8 and into cars) would love it but he was not. Thought my girl (6 going on 7) would hate it but she was engrossed in the quiz. I thought it had a good mix of interesting exhibits and some local speed/transport related history.
