British Motor Museum

Explore the British Motor Museum, the largest collection of historic British cars in the world.

Take a walk down the 'Time Road' and discover how both motoring and family life has changed through the decades including period music and memorable events such as the introduction of double yellow lines.

Travel through 'Making British Cars' and see how influential the motor industry has been over the years and where it is heading in the future.

Get 'Under The Skin' and unravel the mystery of how cars work with interactive exhibits. Experience how suspension has improved over time and compare the difference between rack and pin and power steering.

Go 'behind the scenes' in our Collection Centre and see how we store and preserve our vehicles. There are over 250 cars from both our reserve car collection and that of the Jaguar Heritage Trust to explore. You can also view the restoration work underway in our historic vehicle workshop. 

There is an onsite café serving hot and cold meals and snacks, an outdoor play area and free parking.  

Check our website for information on great school holiday activities and special weekend motoring events.

Fun for all the family whatever the weather!
