'Mini Madness' returns to the British Motor Museum this Easter!

Patsy & Victor Mini Factory workers'Mini Madness' returns to the British Motor Museum this Easter from 4 – 26 April with a host of Mini themed family activities. 

Visitors can join the Mini Factory costumed characters on a family tour, design and make a Mini, or explore the Museum with the Fix It Family Trail. On Thursday 9 & 16 April, visitors can also join the STEM ambassadors to take part in a Mini Egg Rover Challenge. Then, over the Easter Weekend from 10 - 13 April, children can enjoy a traditional Easter Egg hunt with a Mini twist!

The Fix It Family Trail takes place daily from 10am – 5pm for visitors to explore the Museum and find pieces of the puzzle needed to fix the car. Will it be a car of the past, present or future - or a unique hybrid?  Make a Mini takes place every day from 10am to 3pm, offering children the chance to get hands-on with air drying clay to design and build their own Mini. The Mini Family Tour, daily at 1.30pm, sees the Mini factory characters take visitors on a fun and informative tour of the Museum and regale them with stories of life in the 1960's.

The Mini Egg Rover Challenge takes place on Thursday 9 & 16 April from 11am until 3pm. STEM Ambassadors from MOD Kineton will be on hand to help children programme a Sphero RVR Robot to complete a challenging assault course whilst trying to keep their chocolate mini eggs safe!  This activity is suitable for 5 years plus with adult supervision.
