Motoring in Miniature creative activities

Create your own motoring in miniature with these specially created downloadable activities for children, inspired by our recent exhibition in the National Motor Museum.

Children’s toys have always mimicked adult life. Toy soldiers, doll’s houses, train sets and boats have been favourites since the nineteenth century. With the arrival of increasing numbers of motor cars on our streets from the turn of the 20th Century it wasn’t long before enterprising manufacturers started to produce toys inspired by the latest transport revolution.

Now you can create your own motoring in miniature, using the National Motor Museum Collections for inspiration.

Try them out and share your creations with us on Beaulieu social media using #NMMCreative
