Download Event to Calendar

Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 September

10.00am – 5.00pm

As part of Heritage Open Days and to celebrate Coventry as the centre of the British car industry and the birthplace of the bicycle, Coventry Transport Museum will offer free admission for all on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 September.

Visitors can enjoy our world-famous world-class designated collection and take part in our new International exhibition Move and Play.

Get within touching distance of some of the most amazing vehicles ever invented. See the cars your parents and grandparents drove or explore what you might be driving in the future. Get caught up in the real-life stories of Coventry’s innovators and entrepreneurs. Coventry Transport Museum isn’t just for transport enthusiasts: it’s for storytellers and escapists; speed freaks and thrill seekers; history buffs and culture vultures. It offers a uniquely human perspective on the city’s motoring heritage, and is one of the Midlands’ best days out.

MOVE & PLAY

Explore an immersive world of games, challenges, and triumph in this must-see exhibition!

From disco donuts to nostalgic tennis, thermal cameras to tightrope walking. Adventure through 19 different activities, unearth the impact of movement on your body and put your senses to the test. The UK debut of Move and Play! offers an unmissable experience for visitors of all abilities.

Want to revisit? You can purchase an annual admission ticket at the box office so you can return throughout the year.
