Coventry Transport Museum
Coventry Transport Museum, which opened in 1980, houses a collection of vehicles that is acknowledged as being one of the finest in the world, and the largest in public ownership. The museum tells the story of a city which changed the world through transport. Your group can expect to encounter captivating displays, interactive galleries and highly immersive exhibitions.
This extraordinary collection consists of motor cars, commercial vehicles, cycles and motorcycles. 14 fully accessible galleries are home to the fastest vehicle in the world, pioneering bicycles, transport champions and many of the most innovative, memorable and luxurious vehicles of the last 200 years. For members of your group seeking more adventure, they can walk through The Blitz experience or enjoy a ride in one of three 4D simulators. The exhibition also confronts the poor state of British Car Manufacturing during the 1970’s, with abundant strikes, leading to social unrest.
