Christmas at the British Motor Museum

Written by: Elmtree Press

The British Motor Museum is offering families the chance to get into the festive spirit from 8 - 23 December with a range of Christmas activities including a Christmas trail, festive tour and Christmas crafts weekend. With something for everyone, the British Motor Museum is the perfect place to escape Christmas shopping or avoid the cold this festive season!
The Christmas Trail, which runs from 8 – 23 December, encourages younger visitors to help Martin the Mechanic get Santa back on the road to deliver his presents. In the Collections Centre children will need to search for the pieces to fix the sleigh and help round up the reindeer that have escaped! At the end of the trail there is a reward - either a chocolate treat or Christmas gift.
Come and meet the costumed guides - Lady Edwards or William the Chauffeur and hear about the Christmas goodies that they will be delivering to the servants for Boxing Day.
The Museum's Christmas Elves will also be stopping by each day at 1:30pm to take families on a special festive family tour.
A Christmas Crafts weekend takes place on 9 & 10 December when visitors can make car shaped Christmas cards as well as decorating salt dough cars to take home and hang on their tree.

Whilst the Museum is closed from 24 December – 1 January inclusive, come back and see us in the New Year. Drop in to our Learning Space between 2 - 5 January and get creative with Lego®. Design a new car for the New Year and we’ll take a photo of it for our 2018 Motor Show Brochure! Then why not step back in time and meet our costumed explainer ‘Torchey Blane’ and her scoop of Journalists as they report on the new cars from 1935! Don’t forget to have a go at our Motoring Treasures Treasure Hunt, you can pick up a trail sheet from the Mini outside our Learning Space and hunt for the treasure boxes hidden around the Museum.

All activities are included in the standard admission price and are suitable for 3+ years. Gift Aid Annual Passes are also valid for our festive activity days. To find out more about the British Motor Museum please visit the website at  or call 01926 641188.
