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.

We haven't been here for 30 odd years, when our children were little. It was great more rooms have been added on with a lot of interesting exhibits. So much to see. A truly lovely little village museum and of course home to Little Brum. Great entry price 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)!
