Exploring Nature in the Collection


22 July 2021

British Motor Museum


The Collections Centre


Family Tickets: £40

Where can you find a Mayflower, Pink Panther and Ant all in one place? Why, the British Motor Museum!

Nature is all around us and the Museum is no exception. Many car designers and engineers have taken inspiration from nature. Come and explore our car collection with Adventure Annie or Alex and discover nature's hidden influences. Young explorers can enjoy our 'nature trail' and seek out all that blooms, squawks and roars in the Museum.

Meet Our Costumed Explainers!

Explore the collection with Adventure Annie or Alex, our enthusiastic costumed explainers, as they catalogue our nature inspired cars. If you can’t find Annie or Alex, head to our new exhibition, 'Factor us in', and look out for a community of characters ready to tell you their stories. Will it be Brenda the tea lady or Malcolm the big boss from the factory? Why not take a seat in Shirley's sitting room and listen to her stories while she does the ironing? The costumed characters may vary but one thing that will not is their engaging stories about their communities surrounding the car factories.

British Motor Museum- Summer 21- Exploring Nature in the Collection with Adventure Annie & Alex


Explorers' Nature Trail

Help us seek out all that blooms, squawks and roars at the British Motor Museum. Pick up a passport near the entrance and tick off all the different animals, plants and curiosities in our collection, as you find them. Remember to stamp your explorer's passport before you leave.

New for the Summer - Factor Us In Exhibition

Get a taste for life in and around the car factories of the Midlands in our new 'Factor us in' Exhibition. You may also meet some characters with interesting stories to tell.

Take Home Activity!

Every explorer needs a vehicle, so come and collect a cut-out model Land Rover for you to take home and make. You can colour it in, paint it or even restyle it with recycled materials or glitter. Please collect this from the Collections Centre before 4:30pm. One per child.

For more information about our summer activities at the Museum, please contact our Bookings Team on 01926 649 649 or email bookings@britishmotormuseum.co.uk.
