Exploration and Discovery

Go behind the scenes of Locomotion’s fascinating exhibits in this workshop for uniformed youth groups.

This activity is perfect for youth groups such those from The Scout Association and Girlguiding. Following a 15-minute welcome, the package lasts approximately one hour. Groups will be provided with a designated lunch area, and secure storage containers for their bags and coats.

Children will get the chance to explore some of the museum’s fascinating locomotives, carriages and wagons. They will discover a variety of engines, including steam, electric and diesel; some of the world's earliest carriages; and wagons that made Shildon famous across the globe. Children may also get the chance to climb aboard one or more engines to discover how they operate.
