About this Event

Three, two, one... fire! 

Come along to Discovery Museum this spring holiday and join in with our family rocket car challenge. First, invent and build your very own rocket car using junk and craft materials before putting your car to the test. Will you build the fastest car? Can you improve your car so it goes even further and faster?

Your ticket also includes a visit to the museum, admission to the museum is the 'doors open' time of your ticket.  There is a one-way system in place that families must follow.  You can continue with your museum visit after the session has ended. 

Due to the current Covid-19 guidelines we have made changes to how we run our family events. We want to make sure they are as safe as possible. Some of the changes you will see are: 

  • Fewer families in sessions with lots of space around 
  • You won't be sharing your materials with anyone but people within your bubble. Please only book seats on one table 
  • Spaces will be cleaned and sanitized between each session 
  • Adults will be asked to wear a face-covering 
  • Our staff will work from a distance, but will still be there if you have any questions
