Nice day out. Interesting tour by a personable, knowledgeable guide. The cars were well laid out, with information plaques by each exhibit. Good canteen too.

I get to come to the Heritage regularly for work meetings and often take a cheeky walk through the museum part, stopping to look at the cars. For a quick glance whilst walking through, there is enoguh information to keep me interested. Not too sure how it would be if I had paid to come in; I'd expect more of a story to be told.

The conference facilities upstairs at the back, are nice. Plenty of technology and the staff are always willing to help out to get a problem solved, hence why we keep coming back!

Attended for an AGM of a motoring club and have to say that the venue, exhibits and facilities were truly excellent, a fitting tribute to an industry in which Britain once led the world!

While visiting family nearby, I spent a morning at this museum. Expensive admission. The selection of British cars is quite extensive and arranged primarily by date. I'd have to classify it more as a collection than a museum. Few if any of the cars have the hoods open for inspection, there are several marques not represented (no Delorean for example, and I won't give them mine!). There is some good history about the development of the auto industry in the Coventry/Birmingham area which was interesting.

Worth a visit if you have an interest in the history of the area or of cars, but for a true enthusiast, it isn't "meaty" enough. I wouldn't travel up from London just for this, but if in the area (Warwick castle or Avon), give it a shot.
