Silverstone Interactive Museum prepares for a busy Easter


Posted on March 30th, 2022 by Luisa Gatward

It has been over two years since Prince Harry and Lewis Hamilton officially opened the Silverstone Interactive Museum and, in that time, it has overcome the challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic to welcome over 130,000 visitors, members of the Royal family, Formula 1 stars and A List celebrity guests.

This April the Silverstone Museum will be open seven days a week and is expecting many families to take advantage of advance booking discounts to visit and enjoy learning about the history of British Motor Racing and the world-famous race circuit in a fun and engaging way.

The Silverstone Interactive Museum has been designed to inspire the next generation and has over 60 hands-on exhibits where visitors can try out a wide variety of activities – from operating a wind tunnel, piloting a Wellington bomber, taking part in a pit stop and climbing into a replica Grand Prix car.  Visitors can even see whether they have got what it takes to commentate on a Formula 1 Grand Prix.

In addition to the hands-on fun, the museum features some of the most iconic cars and bikes that have played a part in the 70-year history of Silverstone circuit including Mansell’s iconic “Red 5”, an E.R.A from the first ever Grand Prix held at the venue in 1948 and Barry Sheene’s 1979 Suzuki motorbike.

Don’t forget to visit the display featuring Lewis Hamilton’s 2020 race overalls and an enhanced outdoor area where parents can relax with a coffee while younger members of the team can play on an original stretch of the iconic Grand Prix Circuit.

Rounding off a visit is a thrilling immersive film show – the ultimate lap of Silverstone – bringing together some of the circuit’s most famous racing moments with commentary from Murray Walker, Martin Brundle and David Croft.
