Event description

Description

Coventry Transport Museum houses the largest publicly owned collection of British vehicles in the world, and tells the fascinating story of Coventry and its people through the rise and fall of its biggest industry. Now fully reopen (as of 20th June 2015) after a £9.5m redevelopment programme,

The Museum is situated right in the heart of the city. With a gift shop and award-winning coffee shop – the only café that sells the city’s traditional delicacy, the Coventry Godcake

Today we have a tour arranged that starts with the History of the road transport in Coventry from when it first began with the production of the boneshaker at the Coventry Machinists Company in 1868 right through to the present day with the decline of the industry. Part of it looks at the Coventry Blitz. It focuses on some of the main highlights of the collection including Queen Mary’s 1935 Daimler and the vehicle that Field Marshall Montgomery used following the D-Day Landings.

After the tour we have free time to either explore the museum at our leisure or venture towards Coventry Cathedral and/or the Herbert Museum & At Gallery
