Open Store Day & Commercial and Military Vehicle Display

18 May 2013

Open Store Day & Commercial and Military Vehicle Display

Do you fancy getting up close and personal with King George's Daimler?

Would you like to be among the first to see the Humber Pig and Alvis Saracen that we recently acquired for the collection?

Or how about getting a glimpse of the 1950 Alvis TB14 Roadster that was used by T.G. John, the founder and managing director of the Alvis company?
All of these and many more vehicles will be available for you to see at next Saturday's Open Store Day, which will be a rare opportunity for you to explore the vast storage facility in which we keep a large number of vehicles that we don't currently have space to display within the museum.

And if that's not enough, we'll even drive you from the museum to the store and back on a 1963 Daimler double-decker bus!

We are also delighted to be joined on that day by a small display of commercial and military vehicles, will be parked outside the stores for your viewing pleasure.  If you have a vehicle that you would like to display at this event, please contact Clive Skelhon or Christiaan van Schaardenburgh at the Museum, on 024 7623 4270.

Meet at the front of the Museum at and you will be driven on a vintage bus to the stores - a fabulous experience in itself!
