The museum has an array of exciting eye-catching displays and interactive activities on offer during its motor racing mad May Half Term of Fun, from May 27th to June 4th, including a guest appearance from presenter and author Fran Scott.
The star of TV’s popular programme LEGO Masters will be visiting the museum on Saturday, 27th May for an exclusive family event to talk about her new book How to Build a Racing Car, where she will meet families and sign copies of her latest title.
