About

Find wonder in the everyday and inspiration in the unexpected with an unmissable programme of activities suitable for all ages at National Railway Museum. Watch live fire breathing demonstrations, get up close to the original Rocket, and unleash your inner innovator from 26 October to 3 November.

Future Engineers is back for a fourth year with your favourite hands-on challenges joined by new workshops and activity zones. Take inspiration from blobfish, the circus and your living room as you invent ways to conquer pressure, friction and air resistance.

Come face-to-face with the world-changing locomotive, Rocket, in our new Brass, Steel and Fire exhibition. Meet the ordinary people who, inspired by this revolutionary technology, took to their kitchen tables to craft their own miniature steaming, hissing locomotives.

Explore our magnificent collection of royal carriages and record-breaking locomotives throughout your day. Complete your visit with an Explorer Ticket, giving you access to our Miniature Railway, Steam Rides, Mallard Experience simulator ride and a guidebook.

Experience our unmissable October Half Term for yourselves 26 October – 3 November at National Railway Museum, York
