FAMILIES blew off steam over the Easter break with bonnet making, face painting and an Easter egg hunt.
Kew Bridge Steam Museum opened its doors to over 1,000 visitors who enjoyed learning about steam engines at the same time as making hats, getting their faces painted and having a ride on the steam train. Children enthusiastically hunted for much wanted Easter eggs.
Monday also saw the museum's new director, Penny Jenkins, donning a boiler suit for her first lesson in driving the locomotive.
The museum, which is partly under renovation, is now open and in steam every weekend until December.
