The British Motor Museum will play host to two fantastic indoor Model shows in October, which will appeal to all the family.

The Large Model Aircraft Show returns on Sunday 22 October, when visitors can see over 100 large static radio controlled model aircraft. Organised by the Large Model Association, this popular family show also has specialist traders selling everything in model aircraft building, from miniature propellers to small jet engines and pre-assembled models, including WW1, WW2, jets and other types of model aircraft.

The following weekend sees The Great British Model Railway Show which takes place on Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 October. This is a dedicated weekend to model trains featuring over 40 layouts of various scales and up to 30 specialist traders. The event is also one of the biggest model railway shows in the calendar and one of the best in the Midlands.

Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum, said, “Both Model Shows are hugely popular and enjoyed by so many. The shows are ideal for families who are looking for something a bit different to do with their children. You can admire the range of static models, browse the trade area to find that perfect airplane or train for your collection, and speak to builders about their projects to get some handy tips and advice. You might even find some inspiration for a fresh project of your own!”

The shows also coincide with October Half-Term, so there are plenty of other family friendly activities to enjoy at the same time. The theme is 'Roadmap to the Future' with family trails, tours and science shows exploring the ways that cars are developing as time goes on. The Black Cat Museum Trail and family craft activities are available every day. All are included in the entry fee.

Show tickets cost £14.50 per adult, £9 per child, £12.50 per concession and £40 for a family. All tickets must be pre-booked and include entry to the Museum and the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Collection.
