Having visited the British Heritage Motor Museum recently with my 6 year old, on her school trip, we decided to head back with the rest of the family for a proper look around.
We arrived bright and early on a Sunday morning and it was lovely and quiet!
After we had paid the entry – very reasonable price for a day out, especially as we gift aided it which gave us free passes for the rest of the year – the children were given clipboards and maps to take around with them. They had to find all of the stamps and stamp their maps and in return they each got a sticker, prize and some sweets. So they were happy as larry, racing around locating stamps.
The museum is really well set out, with loads of interactive areas to entertain children.
Following the recent release of the Shaun the Sheep movie, they had a Shaun the sheep themed area by the entrance – this included a land rover, dressing up section, colouring area, as well as an ipad loaded with a Shaun the sheep game for them to play.
We saw the London bus again but there was no dressing up or going on it as we did with the educational trip.
There were however, a couple of old cars that the children were allowed to sit in and pretend to drive!
There was so much to do and look at, and it was so well planned with little people in mind, that I would really recommend it as a great day out for the family. And if you do what we did and gift-aid the tickets you get an annual pass, so we will definitely be going back again this year at some point 🙂
