Are you ready to unleash your inner detective? Our full season of sleuthing activities runs 23 March – 3 September, with key dates for your diary highlighted below:
May Mysteries: 27 May – 4 June
Embark on an action-packed day with the whole family at the National Railway Museum this May half term with our brand-new pop-up science busking shows which explore the tricks used by thieves. Hop on board a historic carriage pulled by a steam locomotive in our ever-popular steam rides or put your detective skills to the test in the Rogues Gallery.
Take a ride on board the Miniature Railway or head to Great Hall to experience the thrill of a record-breaking engine in Mallard Experience. Gaze inside the luxurious Royal Carriages in Station Hall, where you can also deploy your sleuthing skills to try solving the curious mystery of the Missing Passenger, our latest exhibition as part of Mystery on the Rails season.
