We really didn't expect to spend the entire day here, but we did. The museum contains a fascinating history of Coventry and its connection to all types of transportation. While my husband focused on the machinery involved, I enjoyed the people parts. The Ghost town gallery was thought provoking as I tried to decide which industrial policy would be best when factories were trying to stay afloat. The displays of unique automobiles, motorcycles, and other vehicles came with lots of information and plenty of stories.
The museum had something for everyone. I was quite sad that our grandchildren were not with us as they would have loved this museum. There were things to look at and things to touch. There were movies and interactive displays. There were history, sociology, engineering, manufacturing, and more. There was a simulation ride on the world's fastest car that my husband really enjoyed.
We had an ok lunch in the cafe and left as they were locking the museum doors. We did buy the souvenir booklet since the entry had been free and this was far better than many attractions that cost a lot more. It also gave us a chance to learn more about all we had seen during the day.
