Back to the Drawing Board Mini Trail

Our family trail is inspired by the legendary Sir Alec Issigonis who designed the Mini. His ideas always started with a sketch!

Pick up a trail board from the Family Station and explore the Museum, seeking out the different pieces of the drawing board jigsaw to design your Mini. Sketch, technical drawing, cut away or finished design – which will you choose?

When your Drawing Board is complete return to the Family Station and collect your sticker.
