The national Motor Museum at Beaulieu will finally reopen its indoor spaces on 17th May, flowing the latest lifting of COVID-19 measures.
The next-step in the government’s roadmap will see doors opened to the museum, as well as the World of Top Gear exhibition, Palace House and Beaulieu Abbey. Following careful preparation and Covid-secure measures aimed at keeping both visitors and staff safe, there will once again be plenty for all the family to enjoy, together.
The National Motor Museum will open with a new exhibition, Motoring in Miniature – the Toys of Your Childhood. More than 800 toy cars and pedal cars, ranging from the 1920s to the 1990s, are parked up in the display, just feet away from full-size motoring marvels. Visitors of all ages will be delighted to see these much-loved playthings of the past, bringing small-scale motoring memories to life.
Throughout May half term, a number of these toy cars will ‘escape’ the confines of the exhibit. Younger visitors can follow a family fun activity trail to see how many of these tiny motors they can help find.
Little ones will also discover big fun with Little Beaulieu, the new play area modelled on Lord Montagu’s ancestral home of Palace House. A huge hit with youngsters and families, its tree-top walkways, secret staircase, epic climbing wall, zip wire and even more exciting features are all waiting for you to explore. Built for playtime, the design of this wooden wonder pays homage to Beaulieu’s remarkable heritage and ancient buildings.
The 2021 calendar is also packed with Beaulieu’s other highly-anticipated events, starting off with brand new Simply Electric on 23rd May, a gathering of electric vehicles in the grounds of the National Motor Museum, followed on 6th June by the hugely popular Simply Porsche.
Beaulieu is proud to hold Visit Britain’s ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard, with Covid-19 safety measures as part of our visitor safety promise meaning that all visitors can safely enjoy their day out. We request that all visitors pre-book their visit date and arrival time, to help us to manage capacity and maintain a safe environment for everyone.
With the entire attraction now open for visitors, there truly is something for everybody to enjoy at Beaulieu, together. Make sure to book your admission tickets now by heading to www.beaulieu.co.uk.
