Last year we invited visitors to pick up a passbook and travel through each of our activity stations to collect their stamps at our Hands-On Half-Term event. Did you collect them all?
We HANDLEd HISTORIC MOTORING OBJECTS...
Honk the horns! Try on goggles! Visitors tested out early motoring clothing and took a close-up look at artefacts, photos and documents.
...BALANCEd A WHEEL...
Visitors could try the 'bubble balancer' in the National Motor Museum - could you place the weights evenly around the tyre to make it balance?
... took the BALLOON CAR CHALLENGE...
We loved seeing your balloon-powered cars. It was fantastic to see how far and fast they could go!
...BECaME A MEDIEVAL BUILDER...
The monk in Beaulieu Abbey was on hand to show visitors some medieval building tips and teach them how to make an arch.
... and Dressed as a victorian
Visitors were invited to try on Victorian costumes and play traditional games in Palace House.

Had a brilliant day out here during half term. Lots to see and do. The museum was really good, but also there is so much to do outside.
