Pendon For Families

Something for everyone 

Family Trails. We have 'I-Spy' style family trails to follow individually or as a family group. They are designed for 6 year olds and upwards and are a great way for families to experience the museum, identify details and understand more about life in 1930s. On completing a Trail children are rewarded with a Pendon fridge magnet.

Audio Guide. Our audio guide relates the models to aspects of life such as working on the railways and life and work in rural villages. The guide is complimentary to all visitors making a Gift Aid donation. 

Junior modelling. We run 'drop-in' modelling sessions for 5-14 year olds on school holiday Wednesdays. These are free and each child completes a small diorama to take home while learning modelling skills.

Cafe. Our cafe has a range of drinks and light refreshments. For those seeking a meal there are several pubs and restaurants near the museum and our reception team can provide guidance on these.

Shop. We have a shop that sells our own range of 3D printed model figures, railway and modelling books, and a range of books and souvenirs for younger visitors.

Discount vouchers. We participate in a voucher scheme with 5 other local train-focused attractions that offers £2 per person off future visits. You wil be given these vouchers at reception - one for each person in your party. They can be used at either the other attractions or used for a return visit to Pendon. They are transferable.
