In light of the recent Government guidance, the British Motor Museum is currently closed to visitors. We are planning to reopen on Friday 4 December.

As a registered charity, we would really appreciate your support to help us continue to preserve and protect our collections for future generations. Our Online Shop is open for you to buy the perfect present for a classic car enthusiast. Heritage Certificates are available from our Archive Team. If you would like to donate to the Museum, we would be very grateful. Also, you can book tickets ready for when we reopen.

If you have already purchased a ticket for the Museum or an event please take a look below where we have tried to answer any questions you may have.

You can also stay in touch with us via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

We can’t wait to welcome you back to the Museum again, in the meantime please stay safe and take care.
