Calling all young detectives for half term fun at the British Motor Museum Saturday 27th October - Sunday 4th November

Throughout the Warwickshire October half term from 27 October – 4 November, the British Motor Museum is inviting children of all ages to put their detective caps on and help the Museum’s Junior Designer find the Missing Plans.  Young detectives should meet the costumed guides at the Family Activity Station at 11am, 1pm or 2pm, where they will be briefed on the case. Then it’s over to you! This is a fun interactive family trail suitable for all ages and available every day except Halloween (Wed 31 October).

    Keeping with the detective theme, children can also learn how to write secret messages or create their own secret car plans with invisible ink in the Secret Agent Lab.

    Now it wouldn’t be October half-term without some Halloween activities, so all half term children can enjoy the Halloween Black Cat Trail searching the Museum for the hidden black cats, and then with a torch discover the colour of each cats eyes! Whilst on Halloween itself, Wednesday 31 October, enjoy a Halloween Spooky Spectacular Science Show. ‘Professor Pickle’ and ‘Doctor Pumpkin’ will treat everyone to a 25 minute live spectacular full of cool interactive demonstrations and spooky science. The shows run at 11am, 1pm and 2pm. Spaces will be limited, so sign up at the Family Station on arrival.
