Spark your children's curiosity and imagination as we explore all sorts of vehicles and wheels. There will be plenty of time to explore, talk and play in this very active, multi-sensory session.

In this session, children will:

  • travel round the museum to find all sorts of wheels and vehicles, from toy cars to the tram from Southend pier
  • sing about the 'Wheels on the bus' and join in all the actions
  • play with cogs and spinning tops and discover what makes wheels spin
  • make a special bus to take home, with wheels that go round!

Stay for the day

Pick up our binoculars and explore the whole museum and park. There is plenty to discover in the new interactive museum displays and outdoor playground for under fives. Entry to the museum is free.


We have indoor lunch space available, plus picnic benches and a children's play area in the park. The museum is fully accessible with a lift and an accessible toilet.
