Family Fun

As well as being the motoring mecca for the die-hard enthusiast, the Haynes Motor Museum also takes family fun very seriously! 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.

There is plenty to keep the whole family entertained from learning how a car works to having fun with and brass rubbings. There’s also Haynes Motorland, a fantastic outside playground; with go-karts, an interactive garage and mini road system. 

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.
