Family Fun

As well as being the motoring mecca for the die hard enthusiast, the Haynes Motor Museum also takes family fun very seriously indeed! We appreciate that entertaining a toddler requires just as much thought as entertaining a teenager!

 We know that a happy baby and toddler mean happy parents and grandparents. Whether you are visiting from afar or a regular local, you can enjoy strolling around the Museum or sitting with friends drinking a coffee while your children play in safety. 


  • Adventure climbing frame
  • Interactive garage and mini road system with ride-on cars, motorcycle rocker, functional AA and telephone boxes, and air and water depot
  • Themed Play 
  • Towers including a double-decker bus, camper van, ice-cream van and jeep
  • Construction Zone with Super Diggers (a small additional charge applies) and themed play towers including excavator, dumper and digger

We also have our Little Tikes baby car strollers. Let the little ones drive themselves around the Museum giving you time to enjoy the exhibits!

There is plenty to keep the whole family entertained from learning how a car works to having fun with Paint a Mini, the Top Trumps trail and brass rubbings. There’s also Haynes Motorland, a fantastic outside playground; with coin-operated go-karts, interactive garage and mini road system. The top trumps trail allows them to head off and explore, discover and experience the Museum at their own pace in a safe environment.  

Pass on your knowledge and stories of motoring past and present; whether it’s the Memory Lane exhibition, Wheels Around the WorldMinis and Micros, or Great British Marques, there is sure to be a vehicle that either you or your parents owned in years gone by.
