Create an itinerary including Cotswold Motoring Museum
Discover an extensive collection of motoring memorabilia and toys from the 20th century at Cotswold Motoring Museum. The museum features a large collection of vintage and classic cars and motorcycles, campers, and original enamel motoring signs. Listen for period music as you peruse photos and items from past eras, most notably the extensive toy collection. Housed in the museum is "Brum," from the popular BBC children's television series; you can make a brass-rubbing of the car as a souvenir. The museum also displays periodically changing motoring exhibitions. Don't be fooled by the appearance: The museum is much larger than it seems from the outside.

  • Fantastic museum, absolutely stacked with cars, memorabilia, and toys. Succinct relevant descriptions against every car. Very helpful informative staff. I thought I would spend half an hour there...

  • Great mix of cars and bikes. Lovely staff. More on show than looks possible from outside. Some great toys for the kids, or parents….

  • An 'Imp'ressive collection of automobiles and toys.
  • Made a visit here during a short break in the area. Really enjoyed walking round the many exhibits, some of which I recognised from my own lifetime and brought back childhood memories. Others are way older, some look familiar to those seen in period dramas and films, really interesting to see at a closer perspective. Fascinating experience and good value. Excellent for children and adults of all ages.
  • I love vintage in general. So I was not disappointed with this museum. The collection of vintage cars is absolutely insane! Also the decors are so well made. You feel like you travelled back in time! I love the experience. Also the museum was not crowded at all and we managed to visit peacefully. I had an amazing time inside!
  • Great place, full of great memorabilia as well as cars. Have a fab time just a shame we felt pushed round. With social distancing people behind were reluctant to pass and with limited numbers allowed in at once felt obliged to move round more quickly than we would have liked. But will return to spend more time to appreciate all the items
  • There's Brum!
