I took my 5yr old for a day out to Brooklands at the end of the Christmas holidays. He loves engineering and working out how things work, so he was in his element. I have to say I was thinking I would have to pretend to be interested but it really was very good. The volunteers who are all around the museum are proper enthusiasts and love to talk and show the children how things work and the history behind the exhibitions. My son even got to sit in a Hurricane fighter jet which he thought was brilliant. Concorde was excellent too! I think it will be a place that we return to again and again as there is so much to see you can’t possibly cover it all in a couple of hours!
Great for little transport enthusiasts

Went today with our 2.75 boy and 1 year old girl. The new London Bus Museum was a big hit - lots of old buses in a big shed and the children can go on a couple and pretend to drive one. The airplanes were great - didn't think we would be able to go in so many and the car sheds are well organised and interesting. Easy to go round with a pushchair. Discovery room with lots of science and building puzzles and a flight simulator. The soft play in the cafe was a big hit (u4s only) and the food was nice too. You could make a day of it combined with Mercedez world next door which is free.
Surprisingly absorbing

We went here at the end of the Christmas holidays and as I was taking 3 girls who I didn't think were that interested in cars or planes, I was amazed at how much they enjoyed it.
The 2 older ones (8 & 6) loved going on the real life aeroplanes and were also interested in looking round the car museums and learning about the cars. The staff were really helpful and they let the girls sit in a F1 racing car and a Harrier jet.
The youngest (2) enjoyed running around and sitting in cars but would have got bored quickly if the others weren't there.
I think this is a good place and children over 5 will definitely get the most out of it.
Not a bad way to kill a couple of hours

I took my son here when he was three and a half and he quite enjoyed seeing the planes and vehicles on show. More the sort of place you'd walk around for an hour or so and then have a cup of tea/quick lunch at, but not ideal for a full day out. Older boys who are particularly into planes and racing cars would enjoy as would older children interested in the history of cars and racing cars.
