Written by: Elmtree Press

‘AutoScience’ fun at the British Motor Museum this Easter!

Visitors are invited to join in with some ‘cracking’ fun activities this Easter at the British Motor Museum. Starting with a traditional Egg hunt over Easter weekend, followed by two weeks of ‘AutoScience,’ where the science that drives our cars is brought to life with live science shows, family tours, Technic workshops, and a Secret Mission family trail.

Families can join in with a traditional Easter Egg hunt (with a motoring twist of course!) over the Easter weekend from 30 March – 2 April. Plus there will be daily drop in craft activities suitable for all the family.

The AutoScience Easter activities will run from 3 - 15 April. The AutoScience Live shows take place every day at 11am (Science of KAPOW!),  2.15pm (Science of Speed) and 3pm (Science of KAPOW!). Each show lasts 25 minutes and is full of cool interactive demonstrations by our ‘mad scientists’ Professor Pickle and Doctor Pumpkin as they explain the science that drives our cars.

Visitors can also join Professor Pickle or Doctor Pumpkin on the AutoScience Family Tour which takes place every day at 1.30pm and gives families an insight to the Museum in a fun and relaxed way lasting no more than 20mins.

For LEGO® Technic fans, AutoScience Technic Workshops will take place daily from 10am to 3pm, a chance to get hands-on to design, build and test your own LEGO® Technic machine. Race it along the ‘Track’ with the fastest car of the day winning the title ‘Champion Designer’ as well as a prize.

The AutoScience Secret Mission Trail also runs daily, just pick up a trail sheet from the Family Station and follow the photo clues around the Museum to find the seven Secret Mission boxes – solve the answers to collect a reward sticker.


Emma Rawlinson, Life Long Learning Officer for the British Motor Museum stated “From Easter Egg hunts to AutoScience shows with our very own ‘mad professor’ - as well as family tours, trails, and craft activities, we have plenty to keep the whole family entertained this Easter whatever the weather!”.
