What we offer on a school trip
Situated just off Junction 12 of the M40, the British Motor Museum is home to the world's largest collection of historic British vehicles spanning the modern, classic, vintage and veteran eras. 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. With over 300 vehicles on display in an impressive Art Deco style building, the Museum offers an inspiring learning environment for students of all ages and abilities.
Our range of experiential and inclusive programmes allow students to explore history, art and design and STEM subjects in ways which they would not be able to in school. Whether you are visiting us in person or have booked a Virtual Session, our friendly and experienced Learning Team will help to create a safe space where your students can explore their industrial heritage, test the science behind car design or look to the future of alternative fuels and transport.
If you are visiting us in person, you will receive a personal welcome and have access to dedicated Learning Spaces, lunch spaces and coach parking. The Museum has been awarded the ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry charter mark by VisitEngland. This means we have all the required processes in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit for all and we have adopted new approaches in order to adhere to current government guidelines.

Our amazing vehicle collection ranges from some of the earliest British vehicles though to the latest Land Rover designs to film cars such as FAB1 from Thunderbirds and the Defender from James Bond’s Skyfall, so there is something for everyone.
If you are unable to visit us in person or are home-schooling, a virtual visit to the British Motor Museum with one of our interactive Virtual Sessions is also a great way to support your children's learning in history and STEAM.
