Magic of Science - Brirish Motor Museum 2022. Artist - Jim Kay

Families can discover the Magic of Science at the British Motor Museum this half term from 22 – 30 October. Children can get up close to one of the Ford Anglia’s which starred in the film Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and then 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 takes place every day when children can search around the Museum for the hidden black cats and, with a torch, discover the colour of each cat’s eyes!

The Extraordinary Family Tour runs from 22 – 24 & 28 – 30 October when children can join Professor Pickle or Doctor Pumpkin for an interactive family tour, exploring the Museum to seek out the extraordinary in the collection.

The Magic of Science Show takes place from 25 – 27 October with the mad scientists performing some mind-blowing experiments in the not-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.
