  • Having visited a few transport museums I can honestly say that this museum is in the top 3 in the country. Children and adults will love this place, packed with history very well laid and out easy to navigate. Parking nearby in Bishop Street I paid £4 for 3 hours. I can highly recommend this Museum and the nearby Esquires Coffee shop. The staff were great.
  • Lovely place to visit, so much knowledge to learn about Coventry and the history of all sorts of vehicles and transport. Hands on activities and informative exhibits. The whole history of transport all laid out in a really enjoyable journey of time. Great disabled access and toilets, reasonably priced cafe and decent gift shop with something for all wallets, they even do a pocket money bag for 5 pound including a variety of items. Every single member of staff were happy, polite informative and helped us out loads, from showing us where the lift was to telling us how to use the penny press machine, nothing was too much trouble. With the 12 month free return ticket included in the entry price this place is a bargain and needless to say, we will return. Highly recommended. Thank you for a great place to visit.
