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.

Fabulous experience and very enjoyable. As a keen lover of old cars I found it to be brilliant and a very enjoyable trip down memory lane too.

We really enjoyed this visit as a family for totally different reasons! I was interested in the history, my husband loved the motors, and my son loved the numerous play points (fantastic for keeping little hands off the displays!) I personally couldn’t find all of the gnomes (if you know, you know)!
What a wonderful museum to visit. There is so much to look at in there, we spent a good few hours making sure to take everything in. There was even things to do while you're going round like quizzes and spotting little hidden things. Such wonderful history kept, and even history of Brum. I would highly recommend visiting if you ever get the chance.
