  • Catapult helicopters
  • Art fun
  • Junk modelling
  • Bottle rockets
  • String telephones

Activities will be available from 3 - 27 August, Tuesday through Friday between 10.30 - 12.30 and 13.30 - 15.00.

Adults help two children build cars with LEGO. Instruction sheet open on table.

Get to grips with LEGO® construction and you can build a car that will actually drive!

Our social media pages will be updated regularly with the latest information on activities taking place each day. There will also be colouring sheets and decorate-your-own badges available everyday.


Our brand new playpark is now open, which means your visit just got a whole lot more fun. We've got plenty of REME-themed equipment for your young ones to enjoy. The playpark can be accessed during museum opening hours from the outdoor café area or round the side of the museum building from the car park.

Don't forget to stop by Crown's Café during your visit for some lunch or delicious cake. Check out what's on offer in our updated café summer menu

Gnome Trail

The gnomes are back! Don't forget to pick up a trail sheet at the start of your visit so you can take part in our annual gnome hunt. This year it's an Olympic Torch Relay in celebration of Tokyo 2020, so the gnomes are all carrying historic Olympic torches. Find them all for a prize!

Remember to tag us in your gnome-related pictures on social media using the hashtags #REMEMuseum #gnomehunt
