Transport yourself somewhere different
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.
And if you think the cars are the stars, there’s a lot to get excited about. The collection includes the record-breaking Thrust2 and ThrustSSC; motorcycles that took their owners on incredible adventures; the oldest Coventry-built car; and many of the most innovative, memorable and luxurious road vehicles of the last 150 years.
Coventry Transport Museum is situated right in the heart of the city. With a gift shop and award-winning coffee shop – one of the only café that sells the city’s traditional delicacy, the Coventry Godcake – it makes a brilliant day out for visitors and locals alike.
