Wheels of Time
Join Roamin’ Rex, our time travelling character, as he discovers Kent’s fantastic museums and heritage sites.
Roamin’ Rex is on a mission to learn about Kent by following his trusty Wheels of Time map to different places.
Children aged 5-11 visiting any of 48 Wheels of Time venues will be given a different badge at each site.
Children can ask for a lanyard, to display their collection, when they visit their second site.
Roamin Rex’s map, showing all of the participating sites, can be collected from any of the sites, some Tourist Information Centres or downloaded from the Wheels of Time website.
Parents can request award badges for children who have collected 10, 20, 30 or all 48 badges from sites.
Wheels of Time is recognised as a Kent Children’s University Learning Activity.
Badges are FREE. Normal entry fees to each site apply – check here
You can also explore Kent’s heritage, when you are unable to visit Wheels of Time museums and heritage sites.
Earn digital E-badges by visiting some of their websites and completing activities provided, all free of charge.
Each of the participating sites has an activity that aims to encourage you to visit the actual site, when you can; but until then, you can watch a video, complete a quiz, a crossword or puzzle or a craft activity to receive a code which will unlock your E-badge for that site. As a virtual visitor (or Time Traveller, as we like to call them) move through the ranks, from Level 1 to 5, as you earn more E-badges.
Unlike the physical badge scheme, which is for young children, the E-badge scheme is open to all.
