Visit the British Motor Museum as a Family...

The British Motor Museum is more than just a car museum and offers a great family day out, whatever the weather. Our themed trails and costumed guided tours give the whole family an insight to the British motor industry in a fun and relaxed way.

When exploring the 250 vehicles from our vehicle collection, touch screens bring the exhibits to life whilst the interactive zone demonstrates how a motor car works. Complement your day with a visit to the family friendly café and outdoor play area. With free parking, everything is in place for a great day out.

Every school holiday we offer a wide range of family activities. Join us this October half-term and help our junior designer find the Missing Plans! Meet our costumed guides where they will breif you the on case before you explore the Museum for clues and find the plans. You can also learn how to write secret messages with invisible ink within our Secret Agent Lab.
