Record Visitor Numbers this Autumn

01 November 2010

We're thrilled to announce that we are enjoying our busiest Autumn in years, with visitor figures for September and October at their highest for 5 years! For the two months together nearly 68,000 people have experienced the delights of the Museum’s galleries and the stunning vehicle collection.

So if you're one of those 68,000 people, we'd like to say a huge THANK YOU to you for your support!

And the good news doesn't end there - we're enjoying a double celebration, since our cafe Esquires recently received the Godiva Award for Best Café in Coventry & Warwickshire.

Over the past couple of months visitors have told us:

"Coventry Transport Museum is truly my best day out - I've visited lots of times and it's always so good"

"The Museum is the hub of the city - unmissable"

"What a great day we had today over at the museum. For anyone that has not been before (just like myself) this is one place not to be missed. There are an enormous amount of vehicles to wonder around and view. There are also activities for the children along the way around too. A great little trip out for all the family :-)"

Whether you're a long-time fan of the Museum or are yet to pay us a visit, it would be great to see you this Autumn and Winter - remember, admission is still FREE so there's no excuse not to join us, and help us to keep breaking those records!
