Under 5s enter FREE with a paying adult

In July and August the focus is on Mr Gumpy’s Motor Car by John Burningham. Mr Gumpy and his friends all go for a drive but when it starts to rain and the car gets stuck no one wants to get out and push - what will happen?

Inspired by Mr Gumpy's super story time, children will then be able to make their own paper plate animals to take home along with your own picture of Mr Gumpy's car.

Play & stay

Enjoy the Museum's Mini Motorist under 5s activity mornings. Every monthly Monday session has a different theme, with activities and stories - and, of course, plenty of time to play! Sessions run on every 3rd Monday of the month from 10.30am to 12pm with time to explore the Museum and grab some lunch afterwards. So come and discover the world's largest collection of historic British cars with your toddler.


We have a family friendly café with highchairs and children's lunch box meals as well as excellent coffee, tea and cake. There are baby changing facilities on the Museum and café level, both located in the disabled toilet. There is a lift or escalator to the café, but the Museum is all on one level and buggy friendly. Buggy parking is available.


There is no need to pre-book for any of the Mini Motorists sessions. You are welcome to just come along on the day, but you can save money if you buy your Museum ticket in advance.

Advance prices: Adults £14.50, Concessions £12.50
On the day prices: Adults £16, Concessions £14
Under 5's are FREE.

There is also the option to convert your ticket to an Annual Pass at no extra cost to you, which means you can come back for all the sessions this year. All we ask is that you Gift Aid if you can, as this makes a big difference to our charity.

Alternatively you can become a Member of the British Motor Museum from £3.50 per month and enjoy a range of exclusive benefits including free entry on any day we're open - find out more.
