What we offer on a school trip
The British Motor Museum is a great location for learning for primary students. Our amazing collection tells the story of the people, products and places linked to Britain's motor industry and can help support studies across many areas of the National Curriculum.
The Museum is situated in Gaydon, Warwickshire, just off junction 12 of the M40 and is home to the world's largest collection of historic British cars spanning the modern, classic, vintage and veteran eras. The building itself is a spectacular piece of architecture with an art deco design, and stands in 60 acres on the edge of the Warwickshire countryside.
The Museum offers an exciting range of programmes that support the National Curriculum. There are dedicated Learning Spaces and an Education Team delivering a range of Museum-led and self-led sessions for primary school groups of all abilities.
The amazing car collection includes some of the earliest British cars, sports and racing cars and some of the most modern Land Rover designs. There are cars from films, such as FAB1 from Thunderbirds or Lara Croft's Defender from the Tomb Raider movie.
The British Motor Museum offers a Travel Support Fund aimed at assisting schools with the cost of coach transport to the Museum. Please enquire for further information.
