Win a day out for dad at the Wythall Transport Museum.

THE Transport Museum at Wythall is set to be just the ticket this Father’s Day when kids big and small are invited to experience the sights and sounds of historic vehicles.

And your favourite newspaper, the Redditch Standard, has teamed up with it to offer readers the chance to win one of 12 family tickets (each for four people) to the venue on Father’s Day, June 21, including free entry to the museum and bus transport from pick-up points in Redditch and Bromsgrove.

The bus will pick-up from Redditch Bus Station at 11.25am departing from the museum at 3pm arriving back in Redditch at 3.20pm.

The venue, on the A453 just north of junction 3 on the M42, boasts one of the country’s largest collections of classic buses and electric vehicles such as milk floats.

There is also a teddy bears’ picnic area giving families a chance to relax amid the exhibits.

Dave Taylor, trustee at the museum, said it would provide a great day out for families this Father’s Day.

“There is something for everyone to see at The Transport Museum and we’re sure dads will love getting up close to some of the region’s historic buses.

“We’ve got vehicles dating from 1990s back to the 1910s, offering an opportunity to dads of all ages to enjoy vintage transport that has been familiar throughout their lives.”

Entry is £6 adults, £3 children, and £15 for a family ticket for two adults and two children.
