  • Great museum. Lots of cars, motorbikes, buses, bicycles from all era's. Takes a good hour or more for a proper walk round. Kids and grown ups both got excited by old and new cars on show. Heartily recommend for a chilled few hours family time and might pick up some knowledge while there.
  • Was blown away with the rich history of Coventry in transport contributions. The origins of the modern cycle, prominent modern day brands and a slick storytelling throughout the museum makes it a must-see place. This is how museums should proudly tell their stories and inspire the next generations! And I cant believe how they manage to keep the entry FREE!!! go for it
  • We had wonderful day in he museum!!! We were surprised with lovely, patient and very kind staff. On the way to 4D simulator our older son got scared and the lovely men patiently explained to us how this looks like and he let my son to watch people in the room on the security camera to prove that there is nothing scary in it. We went on second go and my son was so happy after all! Thank you very much!!!
  • Great day out, especially as they choose not to charge. Many interesting exhibits. Something for everyone here. The Blitz display is fantastic. Really pleased they are keeping hold of Thrust 2; a great piece of history.
  • This place is great and FREE! I took my 5 year old girl and 2 year old boy. The girl was whinging before hand "I don't want to look at boring cars". To be fair I had my reservations being free to enter, expecting something not very well maintained with poor displays but thought I've lost nothing if it's free and it's still time with the family. However, I was really impressed with the size of the building, the amount of cars on display and the quality of the displays with lots of them interactive. I live near to Coventry and did not realise how integral it was to the automotive industry. Also some awesome land speed record cars there! They are a sight to be hold themselves. The place is fantastic for free, we got about 3 hours (including lunch) out of it. As for my daughter... She wanted to go back in!
