Easter Family Fun - NRM York
28 March to 15 April 2018
We’ve engineered three weeks of Easter fun at the museum, including a treasure hunt! We’ll ignite your curiosity and get you working together as a family.
🚂 Team up as a family and challenge each other with our new app, Treasure Hunters. Create a unique tour of the museum that changes every time you play.
🚂 Take a ride behind a steam locomotive - steam rides run daily throughout the Easter season (24 March to 8 April and 14&15 April).
🚂 Experience science shows, storytelling and winding engine demonstrations which will bring engineering alive for visitors of all ages.
From 30 March to 8 April we'll also be engineering some extra-special activities for you to team up as a family and get hands-on:
🚂 Craft your own Flying Scotsman model to reveal the inner workings of a steam locomotive. Book your place now to avoid disappointment.
🚂 Discover the story of early rail innovators in our new Stephenson’s Rocket workshop.
🚂 Take a giant leap through history to hear about the futuristic innovations behind the famous Japanese Bullet Train in our daily Shinkansen Talks.
🚂 We’ll also reveal the inner workings of a steam locomotive in our daily demonstrations.
Entry to the museum is free for all ages. We’re open 10am-6pm every day during Easter. Timings of activities may vary, so pick up one of our Daily Diaries when you arrive to get the most up-to-date information for your visit. The diary will also tell you which activities carry a small charge.
