Dive into Car Design this summer at the British Motor Museum!


Children can dive into the wonderful world of Car Design at the British Motor Museum with a range of fun activities this summer from 19 July to 2 September. The world of cars is full of great designs, from the elegant Jaguar E-type to the steadfast Land Rover. This thinking has inspired both the summer holiday activities and the latest feature exhibition, From Sketch To Street, a fascinating exploration of the world of car design through five key areas: interior design, exterior design, functional design, materials and trim. 

Each day from 19 July to 30 August, one of the Museum’s resident car designers, Dottie and Dougie, will host fun and informative ‘Car Designer Family Tours’ exploring different features in car design. Children can then put what they’ve learned to the test as they take on the “It’s All In The Detail” Family Trail, sketching different design features based on the cars they see around the Museum. 

Children can then get stuck into some designs of their own and visit the ‘Car Details Garage’ to design a fascinating new vehicle. If they want some more inspiration, the latest exhibition, From Sketch To Street is opening on the first day of the summer holiday activities. Families can explore the transformative nature of car design, through a broad range of exhibits and interactives. 

On 16 August, the Museum will be running a Summer Access Day. Throughout the day, visitors can discover a showcase of the Museum’s accessible activities and initiatives, bringing a welcoming visitor experience to the widest possible audience. The Museum will also be open later, to give everyone the chance to get in on the action.  

The Museum will once again be hosting ‘Cars on the Move’ in the grounds during the school summer holidays as well, featuring classic vehicles from the collections. 

Emma Rawlinson, Lifelong Learning Officer at the British Motor Museum, said, “This summer, we’re diving deep into car design, with a range of activities that are sure to inspire children’s creativity! The Museum is home to over 400 historic British cars, and each one has its own fascinating design features, from imposing grilles and bodywork, to the tiniest details in the wheels and bumpers. It’s amazing how a good design can really capture the imagination!”
