Fun for all the family whatever the weather!

Explore the British Motor Museum, the largest collection of historic British cars in the newly refurbished Museum, which opened in February.

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.

Enjoy a free guided tour with one of the enthusiastic guides who will help bring the cars to life. There is also an onsite café serving hot and cold meals and snacks.
