Discover the ‘Magic of Science’ at the British Motor Museum this October

British Motor Museum

The British Motor Museum invites families to discover the Magic of Science this half term from 22-30 October. Children can get close to one of the Ford Anglias that starred in the film Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. As well as that join the mad scientists for some magical, mind-blowing experiments, extraordinary family tours plus make an optical illusion to take home!

The Black Cat Trail will be taking place in the museum every day. Children can search around the Museum for the hidden black cats and, with a torch, discover the colour of each cat’s eyes!

There’s also the Extraordinary Family Tour taking place from 25-27 October with the mad scientists performing mind-blowing experiments in the no-so-secret lab!

The Professor is stuck in the past and thinks a car is a horse-drawn carriage however Dr Pumpkin will bring him back to the present in the 20-minute show which explores the amazing invention of the car.  

Children can also make their own Thaumatrope – an optical toy which was very popular in Victorian times! They can draw it, cut it out, colour it in, paint it, and even add glitter.

To visit the British Motor Museum ticket prices start at £40 for a family in advance or £44 on the day.
