In light of the current government advice the Museum is currently closed and we have had to take the difficult decision to postpone or cancel many of our events, so we have lost our main source of income.

The British Motor Museum is a registered charity which receives no core government funding, we rely on visitor income to conserve and display the history of the British motor industry for future generations.
