F1 fun at the British Motor Museum this February half term

A great family day out.

It’s all about Formula 1 fun at the British Motor Museum during February half term with a host of exciting racing themed family activities!

From 19 – 27 February half term, families can also discover the much loved British sports cars from manufacturers such as Morgan, Lotus, Triumph, McLaren, Bentley and Aston Martin within the collection.

Families can drop into the Learning Space to design and make a LEGO® Formula 1 Racing Car every day of February half term between 10am – 3pm and ‘race’ it along a track. Once children have recorded their time on the pitstop wall, you can take a photo of your car to print out and take home.

A Family Weekend Tour will take place on 19 & 20 and 26 & 27 February at 1:30pm when children can help the Museum’s ‘resident racing driver’ Jackie Demon pick out their next drive and discover the amazing racing cars in the Museum’s collection.

Professor Pickle and Doctor Pumpkin will be running their ever-popular Science Shows on 21, 22, 24 and 25 February and sharing the secret science of speed. For one day only on Wednesday 23 February, join the STEM ambassadors from MOD Kineton to make and launch ‘Rocket Cars.’

There is also a new ‘Road Map’ family trail enabling children to explore the cars in the collection that are linked by name to different destinations around the world. Simply pick up the ‘Road Map’ Trail at the Family Activity Station andreturn for a reward sticker.

Emma Rawlinson, Lifelong Learning Officer at the British Motor Museum said: “February’s activities are all about helping families engage with our collection in a fun and interactive way, bringing cars to life with great stories, fun facts and hands on science. There is something for all ages to enjoy.”
