MOTORING IN MINIATURE

The National Motor Museum's travelling exhibition Motoring in Miniature – On Tour, is sharing joy with shoppers in Portsmouth in its new temporary home in Cascades Shopping Centre.

The exhibition of toy and model cars, which was launched in the National Motor Museum in 2020, has been adapted to go on tour. The colourful display, capturing the joy and excitement of childhood play, from games and posters to roadways and toy vehicles, has been installed in a shop unit in the Portsmouth shopping centre, for passers-by to enjoy until Spring 2022.

It is spread across 6 windows on a busy corner of one of the shopping centre’s thoroughfares. You can’t fail to spot the giant roadway, chock-a-block with toy cars of all ages, scales and designs, with brands including Corgi, Dinky, Matchbox, Hot Wheels, Triang and many more.

A selection of toy garages, once the focal point of play for generations of youngsters, are on show in the colourful exhibition, along with motoring-themed games, puzzles and Scalextric layouts of different eras.

So, what are you waiting for, take the young ones to see the display or maybe go yourself to bring back happy memories.
