‘We’ll Take You There…’ 100 years of Hornsby buses


We are pleased to announce that the next temporary exhibition at North Lincolnshire Museum is:

We’ll Take You There…’ 100 years of Hornsby buses

21 January to 15 June 2014

2014 marks 100 years since father and son, Arthur and Joseph Hornsby, set up their bus company in Ashby. This exhibition celebrates Hornsby Travel’s centenary by exploring the social history of bus travel and the impact this family business has had on the local area.

The exhibition is ideal for schools groups and includes role play activities, maths based games and oral history accounts. Objects on display include bus memorabilia, seaside souvenirs and cinema tickets. We also have a timeline showing Hornsby history against local and national history.

A teacher’s pack accompanies the exhibition, with key stage one and two trail sheets and pre and post suggestion activities. You will receive this once you book your visit. Each pupil will also receive a free Hornsby pencil to complete their trail.

Hornsby Travel are kindly providing discounted coach travel for North Lincolnshire schools to visit the exhibition. The cost will be £20 return from anywhere in North Lincolnshire for up to 53 passenger seats.

This offer can be used in conjunction with any school workshop at North Lincolnshire Museum. Why not make a full day visit?
