Explore Coventry Transport Museum's collection, which is Designated as being of national importance.

Offering An Item To The Museum

Collecting is one of the core areas of work in museums.  New material is being added to the collections all the time, and we are always grateful for offers of new items.

You must book an appointment if you wish to enquire about submitting items to our collection. Please email to get in contact with our curators.

All potential acquisitions are carefully considered, to ensure that they meet the criteria of our Collecting Policy.  There are many things to consider, such as the condition of the object, its significance to the collection, whether we already have similar objects, and if we have sufficient storage space.

The museum will only agree to adding loans to the collection if they are for short term temporary exhibitions, or if the object is of great significance to the collection and the stories the museum is trying to tell.

The Museum will purchase significant items, however we have to very carefully consider what we purchase, due to limited budgets. If the cost was beyond our means, but we wished to collect the item, we would apply for external funding to aid us with a purchase.

Items we are looking to acquire

We are currently looking to acquire the following vehicles:

Daimler SP250 (Dart) motorcar

Triumph TR3, TR4, TR5, TR6 motorcars 

Loaning an item from the Museum

Coventry Transport Museum will loan items to other Museums, and in special cases to other related institutions, in accordance with conservation needs and security conditions.
