British Motor Museum, Banbury Road, Gaydon, Gaydon, Warwickshire, CV35 0BJ
Spotlight on Science at the British Motor Museum


The Spotlight is on Science this October Half Term at the British Motor Museum. Come and be dazzled as our Mad scientists shine a light on headlamps and the science behind them. Join us for illuminating hands-on sessions as we reflect on the science of lights with our amazing Lucas Collection - one of the world's largest collections of historic lamps.

Young scientists can also enjoy the trail, seeking out all the Museum Cats and their colourful eyes. Don't forget to collect a take home activity bag to create your own optical illusion.

If you're not able to visit the Museum you can still join us with our online activities. For more information visit: https://www.britishmotormuseum.co.uk/whats-on/october-half-term
