What is the history of British Motor Museum to the present day?

The British Motor Museum (previously the Heritage Motor Centre) opened its doors in 1993. Trust’s collection of vehicles was displayed at Syon Park in London whilst the remainder were stored at Studley Castle in Warwickshire along with the archive collection. Trust has raised funds for many development projects over the years, most recently opening the brand new Collections Centre, to house the reserve vehicle collections of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust and the Jaguar Heritage Trust. The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust’s mission is to collect, conserve, research and display for the benefit of the nation, motor vehicles, archives and ancillary material relating to the history of the motor industry in Great Britain.

Review of British Motor Museum

Posted on by Traaveller 1Customer visited Nov 2017

Visited the Motor Museum with my petrol head partner recently.
Hours just vanished as we marvelled at the selection of fantastic vehicles on show.
Massive amount of information presented in a very user friendly manner. Great place to visit if you are doing a project, want to find out lots of detail on the UK car industry or just love beautiful things.
Fantastic selection of cars and engines are well laid out and are all in great condition thanks to the skill of the in house team.
Toilets and cafe are upstairs. Cafe provides a place to re energise with a wide range of food and drink.
The collections and workshop are in a separate building and well worth a stroll around too.
All in all a fantastic place to visit to see the style of a bygone era and marvel at the technological advances of the british motor industry.
Allow a good few hours to be able to really enjoy this place.

Review of British Motor Museum

Posted on by Caroline PCustomer visited Nov 2017

Was really glad we decided to visit here . Our children are aged 9 and 13 and both girls and boys and all of us enjoyed it so much so we will be returning next month ! Lovely to see and hear about some of the old cars and even sit in a few of them . There was activities for the kids to enjoy too and it was nice to see old great grandads cars there instead of a black and white photo! Good value for money with no rush against time and very knowledgeable staff who answered some of the children's questions. We also stayed for lunch and for a first we wasn't ripped off and food was lovely . Highly recommend to everyone for something a little bit different.

Posted on by Gerry HCustomer visited Nov 2017

My friend and I spent about four hours or so wandering around this fantastic facility. Well laid out uncluttered display of the most beautiful motors. Amazing number of original cars from our youth and previous We had no idea there were quite so many manufacturers of British cars which are no longer around. The exhibition was very well curated. Well done all responsible.
Parking was very easy and near to the show. Food reasonable and good price. All staff encountered were friendly and helpful.
