Half-term Halloween Spooktacular at British Motor Museum

THERE will be spooky goings-on at the British Motor Museum this half-term.

During October half-term, the museum will be participating in the national ‘Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search’ based on the 90s puzzle books from Martin Handford.

Families will be able to hunt for Wally around the museum to spell out a spooky phrase from hidden letters, and receive an ‘I found Wally’ bookmark.

The search, organised by Kids in Museums and Walker Books, celebrates the release of a new Where’s Wally? book called ‘Spooky Spotlight Search’. There will also be the chance to enter a grand prize draw competition to win an ArtFund Family Membership and a bundle of Where’s Wally? goodies.

Families can also enjoy rocket science with Professor Pickle and Doctor Pumpkin. The 25 minute live scientific spectacular is full of interactive demonstrations and rocket inspired science. Shows will take place in a large conference room with marked out spaces to allow for social distancing.

And an outdoor rocket workshop aims to blow minds On Wednesday October 2. Children over five can design and build their own Rocket and see how far it flies from the pneumatic rocket launcher.

The museum will be opening daily for half-term from Friday October 23 to Monday 2 November 2. All visits must be pre-booked with no more than six in one party. Face coverings should be worn at all times.
