Visiting with Kids

Brooklands Museum is a fantastic place for a family outing. We offer a range of fun, interactive activities for families, all year round. During school holidays and many event days we run extra specially themed activities. Children can explore the Museum using one of our free trails, which can be collected from the shop on arrival.
