Launch event for Move and Play

Summer 2019, Coventry Transport museum is hosting the internationally acclaimed exhibition; Move and Play. I was luck enough to be invited alone to the opening session on Sunday 30th June.

I took my Daughter, who is 6 along with me, and she thought it was brilliant! I plan to go back during the summer as she loves the Transport Museum. we generally go on hot days, as it means that it is much quieter as everyone else wants to be outside! We follow the family trail leaflets, or sketch cars together. we usually take a picnic to eat at the picnic area half way round the museum. And we always enjoy a drink at Esquires while we are there (as their coffee is really good.)

There are also drop in sessions all summer for Mini Engineers. One of these sessions was on the day we visited, and we had a great time building ramps and runs. Find out when they are on, here.

The exhibition is in the side of the entrance, after the ticket desk. this is where all the exhibitions are generally held. It is a large and airy room, which has plenty of space for the 19 activities that Move and Play has to offer.

“Explore an immersive world of games, challenges, and triumph in this must-see exhibition!

From disco donuts to nostalgic tennis, thermal cameras to tightrope walking. Adventure through 19 different activities, unearth the impact of movement on your body and put your senses to the test. The UK debut of Move and Play! offers an unmissable experience for visitors of all abilities.”*

The 30th June also happens to be the first day that the Transport museum is charging an entrance fee.

But, if you live in Coventry, do not despair! Get your hands on a Go-CV card, and you can still get in for FREE!
