New look British Motor Museum to open in February

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.

New features include a Collections Centre, which allows public access for the first time to an extra 250 cars from the reserve collections of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust and the Jaguar Heritage Trust.

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 www.britishmotormuseum.co.uk or call 01926 641188.
