Our Redevelopment

Download Event to Calendar

From March 2014 until April 2015, Coventry Transport Museum will be undergoing a major £8.5m redevelopment project, which will transform and re-energise the museum, enabling us to tell the story of our City's proud motoring heritage in a world-class, innovative new way.

We intend for the museum to remain open throughout the majority of this period, although understandably, some areas of the building will be closed to the public whilst they are being worked on.  Please keep an eye on this area of the website to find out the latest information about which areas of the museum will be open when you plan to visit us.

Our ambitious project, which has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the European Regional Development Fund, will include significantly upgrading five current exhibition galleries, the relocation of the shop, the creation of a new entrance/orientation space and new community engagement spaces.  It will also include the redevelopment of our neighbouring Grade 1 listed, 12th Century Old Grammar School, which will be brought back into public use as an exhibition, education and events space.

When this work is complete, the Museum and Grammar School will be world-class visitor attractions that will bring people from far and wide to find out more about Coventry's fabulous heritage, as well as offering opportunities for local people to get involved in a wide range of activities.  The Museum will also be able to run in a more efficient and sustainable way, thus helping to safeguard the future of Coventry's important heritage.
