British Motor Museum

British Motor Museum

Explore the newly refurbished British Motor Museum, in Gaydon, Warwickshire – home to world’s largest collection of historic British cars. Over 400 cars, from the very first Land Rover to Lady Penelope’s FAB1.

Experience the sights, sounds and stories of the British motor industry and get ‘under the skin’ with our interactive exhibits. Take a walk down the 'Time Road' and discover how motoring and family life has changed through the decades as the cars are brought to life by our costumed explainers or join one of our free guided tours.

Enjoy dedicated zones on Motorsport, Design & Concepts, Jaguar, LandRover and film cars. Travel through 'Making British Cars' and see how influential the motor industry has been over the years and where it is heading in the future. Get a ‘behind the scenes’ insight into how we store and preserve our vehicles in our new Collections Centre, a store, with over 250 cars from both our reserve car collection and that of the Jaguar Heritage Trust to explore.
