I'm a travelling mother of one, from the UK but now living in Indonesia. Looking forward to sharing day out ideas with you.
Event: -
It's free, fascinating and fun for the whole family
There must be 100 reasons why you should visit York's Railway Museum. In fact, ask any York parent why they go there time after tim,e and you'll soon find out why it's such an amazing place. And now there is yet another reason.

I'm not going to write about the wide-open spaces, trains you can explore or miniature rail systems you can watch. Or tell you about the fantastic coffee shop, train rides you can enjoy or the fact the whole museum is divided between two halls and a splendid outdoor area with play part. And I won't mention that it's mostly accessible to all and FREE to enter. No. Today I'll tell you about yet another interesting exhibition the venue is holding.

From now until mid-April 2020, you can see the original rocket locomotive. In fact, you can get up close and personal to the industry-changing Stephenson's Rocket, which revolutionised rail travel in 1829. The Stephenson's Rocket is back in the museum after 30 years away.

On display, you'll also find lovingly homemade creations made by ordinary people who were so fascinated by The Rocket, they turned their homes into workshops and made their own machines from scratch.

This exhibition shows that the locomotive isn't just Brass, Steel and Fire, but an invention that is loved and sparks interest in all.
