Get up close to Flying Scotsman during its stay in North Shed.
We’ve wrapped up our Easter entertainment, but Flying Scotsman is sticking around for a few more days in North Shed in case you missed it during the chocolate-fuelled frenzy.
Make sure you sign up to our newsletter to receive the latest updates on the rest of the year’s school holidays and events.
When: 18 April – 29 April 2019
Climb aboard Flying Scotsman’s footplate for a unique view of the locomotive from the driving seat. Wheelchair users and pushchairs can now get onto the footplate, too, thanks to a custom-built platform making it accessible.
It doesn’t have to be Easter to do a treasure hunt. Thanks to our Treasure Hunters app and print-at-home object hunts you can curate your own museum adventure whenever you like. There are no wrong answers, only the opportunity to discover something new.
