Jeff Coope, Managing Director at the British Motor Museum said “We're delighted to be hosting our first Museum on the Move event next month, giving Members the unique opportunity to ride in a selection of our cars. We would urge anyone who is interested in the event but not already a Member, to join the scheme and discover more about the Museum and our work. Membership gives a wonderful opportunity to form a closer relationship with our collections and team, as well as providing a vital source of income for the Museum”.

Taking place from 4pm – 8:30pm, 'Museum on the Move' will start with drinks and canapés in the stunning Sky Suite, where guests will get the chance to meet and chat with specialists from the Collections Team, as well as fellow Members passionate about cars and British automotive history. Guests will then be introduced to the fabulous selection of cars and get the chance to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells as the engines are fired up ready for them to take a ride.

Access to 'Museum on the Move' is just one of the Membership benefits. Membership provides vital support to the Museum and its charity, helping it conserve, protect and share the fabulous collections of over 400 cars and millions of artefacts. Members also gain free entry to the Museum for 12 months (including show days), discounts in the Museum shop and café, exclusive opportunities to preview new exhibitions and much more.
