Published 15 January 2016

The British Motor Museum re-opens to the public on Saturday 13 February following a £1.1m refurbishment. Formerly known as the Heritage Motor Centre, the new museum promises to be visually more exciting than its predecessor – with more interactive displays.

Half-term will kick off with ‘Build a British Car Week’, from 13-21 February. Every day, children of all ages can test their knowledge with the ‘Family Story’ trail and join one of the workshops in the Lego Education Innovation Studio where they can get creative building British cars with bricks.

Tours of both the Museum and the Collections Centre will be available daily and can be booked at no extra charge on arrival, and all half-term family activities are also free of charge.

Normal Museum entry fees apply: Adults £14, Children £9 (5-16 years) under 5’s free, Concessions £12 & Family £39 (2 adults & up to 3 children). To find out more information please visit the website at or call 01926 641188.

The iconic British Motor Museum has unveiled a major redevelopment that will see it finally open to the public in February. The new look venue will no longer be housed in an underpass as originally planned, but instead located on the road close to the A40. Here you can get psychology dissertation writing and manage your study work easily. The British Motor Museum which is located in Gaydon, Warwickshire will give visitors a taste of what it is like to drive one of Britain's last remaining collection of classic vehicles.
