  • I visited the Transport Museum on a free day I had in Coventry, and I really enjoyed it. There are so many different types of vehicles, all made in Coventry. Every single car, bike, and bus is extremely well maintained and in much better condition than many cars on the roads today. Each car had a small sign next to it explaining the history of the car. There was so much to learn here about the history of Coventry and the wider transport industry. I will be coming back again when I have some more free time. The transport museum has got to be one of my favourite places in Coventry.
  • Great place to go in cov. And it's free. Nice design and very informative and plenty to see. And both of the thrust cars are there. And there's a simulator for a small price at the end that shows you what it was like to be in the fastest land car.
  • Very enjoyable morning out and given there is no entrance charge it is amazing value. A wonderful reminder of the incredible part the city has had to play in the history of the automotive industry. Truly deserving of 5 stars.
  • Very well-maintained pieces in the collection. Very insightful to see the history of motoring as well as the Coventry side of it. It was quite enjoyable to visit and took a few hours. There were many kids who were really enjoying it too and there were several play areas where parents could just chill with their kids. There was a tractor to take a picture with and a couple of video experiences too. All in all, I really enjoyed it. Only thing I would add is it was a bit confusing to get around at times with no single path. You had to retrace your steps to find the next section at times.
  • Great experience, really enjoyed it! This isn't just for transport crazy people or car addicts, this is enjoyable by all. Great variety, well displayed, path is easy to follow and explanations are clear. On top of everything it's free! The 4d simulator isn't special, but I still went on to contribute some money to the museum and pay a well deserved tribute. If you're in coventry this is a must see.
