The Collections Centre is a 4500m2 store, housing around 250 cars from the reserve collections of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust and the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust.
The purpose of this building is to allow the public to access all the cars in our joint collections for the first time. It gives visitors a ‘behind the scenes’ insight into how we store and preserve our vehicles, and includes the chance to see restoration work underway in the workshop.
Access to the Collections Centre is included in the standard admission price and is facilitated by our volunteers. The Collections Centre is open for visitors to browse at their leisure from 11am to 5pm, with last entry at 4.30pm. Visitors will be asked to show their Museum ticket at the door to gain access.
As this is a store, not a Museum, there is limited information provided about each vehicle and the vehicles are close parked, so it is not always possible to walk between or see inside all of them. However, our knowledgeable volunteers will be on hand within the building to answer any questions.
