Discover a palette of possibilities at the British Motor Museum this half term!


Families can discover a palette of possibilities with a range of colour themed activities at
the British Motor Museum during half term from 11 – 26 February. Children can take a
colourful stroll through the Museum with the Colour Creator Trail, build a colourful ArtBot, enjoy a family Colour in the Collection tour and take part in Science of Colour shows with the Museum’s resident scientists, Professor Pickle and Doctor Pumpkin.


The Colour Creator Trail takes place every day. Children can pick up their 'Colour
Creator' Trail and embark on a vibrant journey around the Museum. They can even mix
up their own colours on the way! 

Colourful ArtBot also runs every day when children can build an ingenious ArtBot,
using a cup, tape, paper and pens, different weights, and battery motor. Children can
then watch the completed ArtBot weave their own unique and colourful artwork as it

The Colour in the Collection family tour takes place at the weekends on 11-12, 18-19,
25-26 February at 11.30am and 1.30pm when Professor Pickle or Doctor Pumpkin will
take families on this fun and interactive family tour.

The Science of Colour Show runs during the week from 13-17 and 20-24 Feb at 11am,
12pm, 1pm & 2pm with Professor Pickle and Doctor Pumpkin. Children can help the
scientists explore the fascinating secrets behind the science of colour and decide what
colour to paint their latest great invention.

Emma Rawlinson, Life Long Learning Officer at the British Motor Museum said “It’s all
about colour this half term with plenty of hands-on fun activities for families to enjoy.
Our Science of Colour show lasts around 30 minutes and will both amaze and fascinate
children of all ages!”.
