    Mixed Impressions
    The museum looks very impressive on arrival. The displays are well labelled and easy to follow but it just lacked any wow factor for me. The collections hall seemed to consist mainly of row upon row of Land/Range Rovers and again left me feeling a bit deflated. As another review said, it would be nice if half the display had the bonnets open. I left feeling a bit short-changed. Something missing????

    Not just for 'Petrol Heads'
    Really interesting museum, covering the history of British motor manufacturing. A great range of vehicles. Lovely to see old cars like the ones that had belonged to parents and relatives- a real trip dpwn memory lane. I particularly liked the sign on a car that had belonged to the Queen Mother, 'One careful lady owner.'

    Left a bit disappointed .
    Really good car museum however , most people I spoke to were rather disappointed that the cars on show did not allow access to look at their engines and/or insides - whilst I appreciate it’s a “no touch” environment , the memories triggered by these cars are tinkering about with the engines and actually driving them , so we’re left simply to view the outsides . I’m pretty sure the visitors here are responsible enough not to touch things , but a look under the bonnets (at least) would be a major improvement .

    One of the best motor museums there is.
    This was one of those museums for years that I kept meaning to go to every time I passed it on the motorway but never got around to it. In 2020 I finally visited for the first time and I loved it so much that I have returned many times since and have even become a member. The museum was originally the British Motor Industry heritage trust collection and so it's largely focuses on BL/Rover etc vehicles including all of the predecessor companies. In the past from years they have been adding more british vehicles from other makers including Ford and have recently added most of Vauxhall's heritage collection to their displays. It is very much a British manufacturer museum so if you are visiting expecting Ferraris, Porsches, Bugattis etc you will be disappointed. It also features the collection of the Jaguar Daimler heritage trust (other than those that live at the Coventry transport museum. The main building is a large circular shape. You enter at the front through a reception area with the gift shop behind. There are several cars on display in this area with various facilities on the left including a cinema showing old films on British car production. You then enter the main area of the museum with cars grouped in several circles plus a row of cars around one edge. There is also a mezzanine are which is currently used for Vauxhall cars. Under the mezzanine area is another exhibition area showing exhibits and displays on design and production. On the left of that is the entrance to the restaurant with a small display of vehicles around the escalators up to the restaurant and some conference rooms. At the far end are some tv and film cars, a motorsport display and some land speed record cars. There's also a further exhibition area which houses various temporary exhibitions. Plus there's a small room with cabinets housing smaller exhibits. You can get much closer to the cars than at many motor museums but are asked not to touch them which is perfectly understandable. If this was everything it would be great but there's an entire other building opposite called the collections centre. On the bottom of this is most of the Jaguar and Daimler collection and the top floor is the overflow collection. These are stored close together to get as many in as possible but you can walk up and down the rows and it's perfectly possible to view all the cars. Most museums that have a collections centre don't open it to the public at all so this a great idea and I think unique among uk motor museums. The collections centre also features a Workshop where all the museums vehicles are maintained with a large amount in full working order. As I said at the start, I love visiting the museum and will happily spend hours looking at the cars. I'm pretty confident that if you are a car enthusiast you'll love it too unless you have some strange irrational hatred of British cars! It will also probably appeal to people who like modern history. My only negative was when the restaurant stopped selling the amazing fish and chips they used to serve. if someone from the museum reads this, please bring it back!

    Celebrating a families life long long love of cars.
    An excellent day and a collection to be admired. But the important part is always ask a guide! We were given the most enthralling descriptions by Tracy and particularly Neil who went out his way to give us a wonderful insight into Royal vehicles, Jaguar heritage and the collection in the attic. (I never thought I'd see the MG PR5/DR2!) I must also put a shout out for the guide who gave us the inside story of Lord Nuffield (William Morris), but with apologies I didn't note his name. This was a family outing on my birthday to share my families life long love of cars and it exceeded my expectation by a big margin. Many Thabks.

    I traveled 4,287 miles to visit this museum. Yes, yes, we also went to London, a BBC music festival in Leicester, and all the fanfare that came with that, too. But this was the destination I left Kansas City for and loved it! They have tours you can resister for on the website, or possibly even join when you arrive, I'm not sure on that. But we just wondered through ourselves. In particular, I was there to see the Triumph's, but seeing all the MGs, Jaguars, etc., was quite the site and a lot of fantastic history. I almost had to be dragged away... If you're already a fan, allow 3+ hours; casual fans might be able to do something less than that. With apologies to all the castles, tours, royal residences, this was hands down the best stop in England. We loved it.

    Amazing
    This is our second visit this year with our grandson. Such fun and so interesting to see some of the most famous cars belonging to such important people including The Queen 👑 and Princess Diana. Not to mention James Bond and other famous icons. Jim who we saw both times made our grandsons visit so special. Can't wait to go again. Well worth many visits to make sure you capture everything. Well done. Simply amazing. Carl Jan and Eli x

    Lots to see
    We visited for the first time, we booked our tickets in advance so we saved some ££. We had tickets for the railway exhibition included, although tickets were needed via booking. The museum is amazing, very spacious, clean with so much to see, but the temptation to climb in is there. We had a lovely visit and all staff we encountered were very friendly and passionate. We loved the model railway exhibition, a day of cars and trains made it the perfect family outing.

    Lovely museum
    Came here with 2 car enthusiasts. Boys are 8 and love a car. They were fascinated from start to finish though a little disappointed they didn’t see a lambo. Museum is clean and well kept and the staff were extremely friendly. We took part in a science show which was put on in the half term which was enjoyed by everyone. Lovely place to spend a few hours with some fab cars including some film and tv cars. Would recommend this place.

    A magnificent British motor vehicle museum
    An amazingly large collection of British made motor vehicles, from the earliest days right through to the present day. All of the museum is under cover, over two floors, including a large cafe with plenty of seating. The surprise was the Jaguar museum across the shared car park - even the cars parked outside it were worth a close look. On the day we visited, the staff were preparing race cars for the weekend so there was more activity than usual. Aside from the vehicles, there was plenty of comprehensive, interesting memorabilia on the walls ie histories of cars, people, events, photos.

    Great Car Museum in modern building with exhibits, well presented in fantastic condition.
    We drove down from Middlesbrough to go (4 hrs drive) as recommended by a friend. I expected my son (20) to enjoy it as he loves cars but I really enjoyed it as well. Not expensive to visit (14 pounds). It took me down memory lane to see the cars my parents had and ones I had bought when I was my sons age etc. All the exhibits were accessible and you could walk around them as not fenced off as in some Museums. Some great Classic cars from 1897 to mid 2000's. including competition cars, record breaking cars, TV/Film cars, last of line cars etc. They are all housed in a purpose built modern building, nice cafeteria for mid visit break. Also a second building full of beautiful Jaguars and an overview of the workshop, I especially liked the D Types, XK120 etc. Even some Royal cars including Princess Diana's Jaguar sports. Museum wasn't packed and easy to see everything, plenty of tours to take if you want but we didn't bother. I did ask the Guides some questions when they were free and they were happy to answer. This is an impressive Car museum and well worth a visit. We walked around for 4 hours and normally I never last that long.

    Not worth the effort, no interesting British cars
    I have no idea how this can get good reviews. This was a pretty average collection of mostly forgotten British cars that my father spent most of his time swearing at when we had them. All the interesting marques like Aston Martin, Mclaren and lotus are represented by one car each. Compared to Loheac in France which is in a small village and has a collection 10x better I wouldn’t waste your money or time.

    Loved the Cars
    Wonderful place to visit for the car enthusiast, hottest day of the year and it was hot inside too. It is spread over two buildings, which we didn't manage unfortunately. We were offered a yearly pass on entry, but I don't think we would be able to make the journey again, but if you're a car enthusiast that's a real bargain. Some of the cars I saw included a Ford my Granddad drove in the 1950's and a Ford Anglia my dad had. From a disabled point of view, all level access, disabled toilets on each floor, and a lift up to the café, there were even some seating around the floor to rest. I believe you can hire a wheelchair for use, but I think it's probably best to book that in advance. Overall a very good day out. Just wish we had more time.

    The Best !!!
    We were actually on our way to somewhere else, but saw the sign for the place and turned around. We are an old(ish!) pair of petrolheads , paid entrance fee, (very reasonable) thinking we would be there for a couple of hours....ended up four and half. This place is awesome. It has so many vehicles to see, engines, workshops to view, memorabilia. Cafe area, shop and lots to do for children too. One of the main things that impressed me the most were the staff. From walking thru the entrance - the desk staff, to the staff walking around all floors and both sites (two). So professional, friendly, funny and knowledgable - and nearly all volunteers! Thank you so much guys for a top day out, will be returning next year. Oh and massive parking area, and large good conference areas for companies to use. Great place.

    Interesting and well worth visiting
    Huge number of cars of all ages on display in a well run, well laid out museum. Friendly/helpful staff/volunteers. (Pity there aren't more Ford cars, but I believe this is to do with the funding/origins of the "British" Motor Museum and the past ownership of JLR)

Oh dear ! Over the last twenty years we have visited the museum countless times. We love it.
This year we have wanted to visit two events; The Bus Festival and the Old Ford Event.
The Bus Festival was cancelled but we had no way of knowing this as the advertisement on the museum website had not been taken down. I rang the museum and the helpful staff member passed me on to the ticket office but there was no reply. Eventually I emailed and several days later received a polite reply informing me that it was cancelled.
So now to the Old Ford Show. For two days I have attempted to book online but when I reached the payment stage I was not allowed to go any further. I continued trying using several devices. I ran the museum and the helpful staff member told me I could only book online and the event was still on. I have tried again today, three times. Finally I phoned the booking line and guess what.... no one there. I am now waited for a reply to my recorded message.
Come on Gaydon, you are much better than this.

This is the first time we’ve visited the museum since it became known as the British Motor Museum. We happened to visit on a day when it was the Ford gathering so it was exceptionally busy and exceptionally hot which wasn’t a great combination. We had to queue to enter one of the museums as there was a 200 persons limit due to fire safety regulations. I particularly enjoyed seeing the tv cars collection and Vauxhalls seeing as I own one. It was nice that you could sit in some cars as well for photos. The only downside was that as English Heritage members we are entitled to a discount, so we tried to book online the day before and the website wouldn’t accept the code and when we phoned up there wasn’t anyone able to deal with it. We didn’t want to lose the normal online discount anyone can get as well so we booked online anyway and decided to query it at admissions when we arrived, however we were told they couldn’t do anything about it now that we’d already booked online which wasn’t very customer friendly, especially when I’d explained the position we were in.

This is a fantastic museum, very interactive and with the overflow area makes for a great day out. If you gift aid your ticket price you will one years free returns, a real bargain.

We were shown around by a brilliant volunteer guide, George and his guide dog, his knowledge is immense and he really made the unofficial tour very interesting. A definite highlight to the day, we gave him 12/10 for his tour and the same for his great dog Yoko.

Cannot rate this museum highly enough, we've got 3 more visits planned this year to some special event days, and we can't wait 😀

Amazing museum with a fantastic diversity of cars (& a few bikes & caravans etc thrown in). Every car here is in amazing condition. Love the outer ring which takes you through the history of motoring a decade at a time. The new building is just overwhelming with every Jaguar you can imagine & a few concept cars too downstairs & upstairs is a huge amount of cars of all sorts& as the lady there said "Every car is here for a reason", so even if it looks ordinary, it's worth reading the information panel as its probably the last of its kind or was owned by someone famous. A great family day out but a lot of walking despite the clever layout.

Friendly helpful staff and lots to see! We booked for when Storm Eunice was due to hit UK and contacted museum staff the day before to ask if we could swap tickets so that we could visit then drive home a day early from a short break in order to miss the storm and possible travel disruption. Museum staff could not have been more helpful and were happy to help us. When we arrived staff were available at all times for any questions or more information. Cafe reasonabily priced and good variety of refreshments on offer.

British or German (BoG) Standard Steel, according to our fantastic guide, Jim. A fascinating collection of 500+ cars, including prototypes, first cars off the line, last cars off the line and cars owned by royalty and prime ministers. Beautiful examples of our most famous marques, many well ahead of their time, showcasing design and safety 'firsts' including an all electric city car, manufactured in 1972 and 1960s Rovers powered by gas turbine. Sadly, the amazing story of car production in the West Midlands reaches the dire crescendo of British Leyland, Red Robbo and Friday Afternoon Cars. Jim was a marvellous guide who appeared at our side and managed to captivate our two youngsters with his stories, including the origins of words such as two hoots, hot seat, pothole and bog standard. Clive was another delightful enthusiast who had his own stories to share. What a fantastic day with a group of people dedicated to sharing the story of British auotomotive heritage.

Superb! We live nearby and the motor museum is a regular for us. You pay about £40, gift aid it and then have free entry for the rest of the year. Lots of interactive displays for children and during the holidays there are always really good tours/ science/ engineering sessions run by Professors Pumpkin and Pickles. Alongside this there is always a creative session eg making and racing dragsters out of Lego or today, making models of Austin 7's. The cafe has a limited menu but the food is superb and reasonably priced. Children's meals (sausage, chips, beans at £5.50), cakes are superb! The museum is well kept- immaculate cafe, toilets, exhibits etc. We will be back. Thank you all for some great days out!

If you're into cars, this is the place to be. Loads of exhibits through the ages and plenty of information. There was a trail-based activity for the kids to do as they went around. The food in the café was way better than we were expecting (especially the chilli and the curry) although it's quite pricey. We thought they were missing a trick by not offering all-day breakfasts! The staff were very helpful.
Only two slight downsides: the museum was far too hot, although it certainly wasn't a hot day outside. In fact the weather was a washout, which brings me to the second point - on the day we visited, there was a Saab exhibition. We knew this was on, but had expected it to be indoors. But it was some kind of international Saab club gathering and there were hundreds of cars outside the museum. Which would have been great to look around on a dry day. But this meant other visitors had to park in a different car park, because the usual one was taken up by the Saabs and a campsite for their owners. The other car park was much further away and the signage for walking back to the museum was very unclear. We naturally followed a sign that said "Museum & Exit" (instead of the one that said 'Show Entrance" because we weren't involved in the show) and ended up walking a very long way around in the rain, which was not ideal with small kids. Luckily we found a shorter way back!

WOW! Perfect visit from start to finish!
Easy online booking, at a really reasonable price for three of us, easy to find and great car parking.
When we got there the Corvette car club was having a meet in the car park, which my son loved.
Brilliant chap on reception, gave us a map and advised us where to go.
We all loved every second of our visit - so many cars right through the ages, lots of space, really clean throughout. Cafe was spotless, quick service and didn’t rip us off. Food was good and fresh.
Then went over to the Jaguar building and met the highlight of our trip…… George with his guide dog Yoko.
George was truly amazing, gave the three of us a guided tour - free of charge - told us great stories about all the cars, opened a lot of them so that we could see inside. His knowledge is absolutely incredible, it was a joy to hear him talk with such passion about the cars. He really did know everything. He’s a real asset to the museum.
Well done George, you are brilliant and brought the cars to life for us. My little boy loved the James Bond story about the gold leaf paint.
If you like cars, you must pay this museum a visit. And if you are really lucky, you might meet George!!!

Let’s face it, you are not going to go to the motor museum unless either you or someone in your family is a car nerd, in which case you are going to love it. The enthusiasm and knowledge of the volunteers really does show. The site is worthy a good half day, we went on a no event day so was not too heavily attended, I am sure when the car park is full of one particular marque it would be very different.

One plus of the entrance fee is the ability to also go next door and visit the Jaguar Heritage Trust, much lower key but equally fun.
