Family Museum Engineers- Playing with boxes | Sessions at Coventry Transport Museum

Saturday 9th April | 10.30 am – 12.30 pm & 1.30 pm – 3.30 pm

Embrace play with our amazingly awesome non-electronic playthings, delve in and enjoy time together as a family in our inspiring environment.

The sessions are linked to themes and objects within our collections and take place directly in the gallery spaces, giving your children (and the adults too) experiences of museum environments through a very playful approach. Each month our family museum engineers will get hands-on with play items that differ slightly each time, opening up varied experiences each time you visit.  

Admission to Coventry Transport Museum is included, when booking a family workshop so there are no hidden costs for you on the day.


Book online in advance | £9.21 per family (max. 5 ppl)

What is STEM?

*Not sure what STEM is? Don’t worry, you don’t really need to know what it is to enjoy and embrace these activities. That’s what are skilled and talented Learning Team are here for. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. This can sound a little scary, especially when you have young children, but STEM based play is important for children to develop skills and knowledge that they will use at school and into their adulthood too. Exposure to any play that encourages children to figure things out, how things work and to be creative is STEM, and as you become more familiar with our sessions, you will quickly realise that STEM is all around us, all the time, and you will have been supporting your children with this already, perhaps without even realising it.
