Day Out With Thomas at the Workshops Museum | The Review
Throughout January, the Workshops Museum in Ipswich is transformed into a Thomas and Friends extravaganza, sure to delight young fans. The Day Out With Thomas 2016 is the biggest event of the year at the Workshops Museum in Ipswich, running from Boxing Day until 31st January 2016, with an array of activities aimed at entertaining the youngsters these school holidays.
Kids will have the opportunity to pose with many of their favourite characters including the beloved Thomas the Tank Engine. They will meet the Fat Controller and enjoy a stack of fun activities related to Thomas and Friends throughout the museum.
The existing trains in the museum have been given a fun make over with the faces of many of the familiar characters from the long running television series, including Douglas and Donald, Annie & Clarabel.
There are Thomas themed play stations set up throughout the museum, with puzzles, colouring in, toy train sets and more. Kids can even get a temporary tattoo on there hand featuring their favourite blue train.
There is also the opportunity to cool off in the air conditioned room while the kids play trains in one of the play rooms, or take a break and read a book in the corner reading nook.
For the bigger kids, the usual educational and interactive exhibits are a greater appeal, with the chance to learn about Australian railway history. Or like the younger visitors, they may even find themselves excited by the chance to learn some magic at the magician exhibit.
