Your day out

Nestled in the picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water, Cotswold Motoring Museum is a great-value day out for visitors of all ages and is easily accessible by car and public transport. The museum is also dog friendly, so don’t hesitate to bring your four-legged friend.

Your fun day out will take you on a journey through the history of motoring, displayed in seven showrooms covering over 7500sq ft. Discover classic and vintage vehicles, over 45 motorbikes, caravans, pedal cars, toys and thousands of items of memorabilia!

"One of the best car museums we have seen. The cars are great, as expected, but the extras – the signs almost everywhere, the models and cycles hanging from the ceiling and so on, really made a difference. The information cards hanging over the cars are great, they had information I’d not seen about the cars’ origins before. If we lived closer we would be more frequent visitors to your museum."
