Join a turbo-charged Easter bonnet parade at Haynes Motor Museum

Enjoy a turbo-charged Easter Bonnet Parade at Haynes Motor Museum from March 29 to April 14.

The iconic Somerset Museum, which tells the global history of motoring from 1895 to the present day, is inviting visitors to take a peek beneath the bonnet of some of the world’s most iconic motor vehicles.

If you have ever wanted to find out what all of the unusually shaped engine parts hidden under the hood actually do, then this trail is for you.

Discover the differences between a V6 and a V8, three cylinders versus six and a host of other fascinating fuel-injected facts.

Younger visitors can also embark on an Eggsplorer Adventure, scouring the Museum’s halls and exhibitions in search of hidden giant eggs.

Each egg holds a clue, and participants must use their wit and ingenuity to uncover all the eggs, unscramble the letters and crack the code.

“Our Easter events offer a fantastic opportunity for families to come together, have fun, and create lasting memories as they explore our world-class collection of motor vehicles,” said Jon Ducker, Visitor Experience Manager.

“It’s a great way for visitors to engage with our exhibits in a fun and interactive way while enjoying the thrill of discovery,” he added.

Plus, there will be the chance to get hands-on in the new interactive motorcycle exhibition, ‘Life on Two Wheels’ where visitors can learn how a motorcycle stays upright, take a quiz to find out if they are a mod or rocker and discover the social history of motorcycling in Britain.

Haynes Motor Museum was formed to look after the wonderful collection of vehicles, automobilia, library and archive first established by John Haynes OBE in 1985. The museum is an independent registered charity and an Arts Council England accredited museum.

Housed within 15 exhibition areas, its vast collection spans everything from the birth of motoring and nostalgic classics to modern supercars as well as racing cars including Nigel Mansell’s iconic Williams F1 race car FW14.
