Kew Bridge Steam Museum launches Festival of Models

Published: Tuesday 28th of October 2008

Kew Bridge Steam Museum has launched a new attraction: the Festival of Models.

On show will be models of all shapes and sizes, representing the best the model-making world has to offer. The show is divided into two distinct areas, and will include miniature of fairground rides and steam engines.

Promising to be a great day out for the whole family, model enthusiasts will find no shortage of experts on hand to answer their questions, as well as pool demonstrating the latest in model boat technology and demonstrations.

The more hands-on among fans will be able to participate in 'have-a-go' sessions, experiencing models they might never have otherwise had the chance to see.

Among the attractions will be a nine-foot rendering of HMS Anson, a G3 battlecruiser and a Meccano replica of the Medway Queen, the only paddle cruiser still in operation in London.

Kew Bridge Steam Museum is situated by Kew Bridge on the River Thames in West London, and the original pumping station on the site was opened in 1838 by the Grand Junction Waterworks company.

LondonPass holders benefit from free entry to the museum, a saving of £8.50.
