British Military Weekend

Discover Britain in wartime
10am - 5pm
Adult £14 Child £9 Family £39

Enlist now for the British Motor Museum's British Military Weekend

Discover Britain in wartime as the British Motor Museum hosts an impressive collection of British Military vehicles, living history re-enactments and a special WW1 history display.

Within the grounds of the Museum visitors will be able to see a selection of WW1, WW2 and Post War British military vehicles including the replica Mark IV Tank used in the movie War Horse, on loan from the Tank Museum, and a full scale replica fuselage of a WW2 Wellington bomber. The Royal Warwickshire Regiment 1914 - 1918 Living History Group will also be on hand performing dynamic displays and re-enactments alongside demonstrations by modern day bomb disposal teams.

Visitors can step back in time as the Museum transforms into World War I Britain with the re-creation of a WW1 encampment, a Field Hospital and a WW1 Trench.  Sign up for Soldier School or take on ‘Kitchener’s Mission’ a fun family trail with activities along the way including decoding secret messages, bandaging wounds in the Casualty Clearing Station, Zeppelin spotting and making a Princess Mary Christmas Gift Tin to take home.

Visitors can meet a British ‘Tommy’ in the trenches to learn about the conditions endured by soldiers on the front lines and drop into our Field Hospital to discover how injuries sustained in battle led to the discovery of new medical techniques and the foundations of plastic surgery! They can also explore ‘B2737 - the Battle Bus’, on loan from the London Transport Museum. B2737 started life as a London General Omnibus Company bus and served Route 9 from January 1914 but when war broke out, it was commandeered for the war effort.

Make a weekend of it...
...and camp in the grounds of the Museum. £10 per person for up to 2 people or just £25 for 3-6 people - booked in advance.
