British Motor Museums

Coventry Transport Museum

Coventry Transport Museum reopened on 20th June 2015 following a £9.5 million refurbishment which has vastly improved facilities both for visitors and exhibits. The superb new Jaguar gallery opened in 2013. The Jaguar Gallery shows Jaguar’s development and progress through the years – from the SS products of the 1920s to the present day with the stunning new F-TYPE. Coventry was home to many of Britain’s car makers, Hillman, Humber, Singer, Alvis, Armstrong-Siddeley, Triumph and Standard are just a few. Access and other facilities have been much improved, details can be found on their website.

After several years of free entry the Museum will start charging on and after 30th June. Claiming the charges are necessary for a sustainable future the Museum houses the World’s largest collection of British Transport. At present the Museum attracts some 360,000 visitors each year. Certain days will still have free admission as will citizens of Coventry who hold GoCV cards. Charges for Adults will be £14, concessions £10.50.
