The British Motor Museum is to host two great indoor Model shows in October for all the family to enjoy: The Large Model Aircraft Show and The Great British Model Railway Show.
The Large Model Aircraft Show returns to the British Motor Museum after an absence of three years, taking place on Sunday 23 October. Visitors can see over 100 large static radio controlled model aircraft. Organised by the Large Model Association, this popular family show also has specialist traders selling everything in model aircraft building, from miniature propellers to small jet engines and pre-assembled models.
The Great British Model Railway Show takes place on Saturday 29 & Sunday 30 October, a dedicated weekend to model trains and layouts. The show presents a rare opportunity to see all kinds of model railway layouts and visit a good selection of specialist traders. It’s also one of very few large model railway shows in the calendar.
Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum said: “Both indoor Model Shows are hugely popular and enjoyed by so many each year. There is so much to see and do from admiring the range of static models, browsing the trade area to find that perfect airplane and train project, and speaking to builders about their projects to get some handy tips and advice.”
The shows also coincide with October half term so there are plenty of other family friendly activities to enjoy at the same time. The theme is ‘Magic of Science’ with Science Shows midweek on October 26, 27 and 28, plus interactive Extraordinary Family Tours over both weekends (22 – 24 and 28 – 30 October). The Black Cat Museum Trail and family craft activities are available every day. All are included in the entry fee.
Show tickets cost £14.50 per adult, £9 per child, £12.50 per concession and £40 for a family. All tickets must be pre-booked and include entry to the Museum and the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Collection.
