The British Motor Museum, formally known as the Heritage Motor Centre, re-opens Saturday 13 February after the Museum has undergone a major refurbishment to show off the world’s largest collection of historic British cars to even better effect.
With elevated views, more stories, cars to sit in, new family activities plus an extra 230 cars to see, some that you may not have seen before, there is lots more to keep your family entertained on a day out.
During every school holiday themed activities add to the fun, with crafts, trails, quizzes and interactive workshops. New for 2016 family tours with one of our enthusiastic tour guides will help bring the cars to life and younger visitors can even cruise along in one of our push along cars.
Our onsite café has everything to keep you fuelled throughout your visit with hot and cold meals and children’s lunch boxes. Kids can also let of steam in our children’s outdoor play area.
