Coventry Transport Museum - Thrust


Coventry is the birthplace of the British cycle and motor industry. The Museum's collection includes over 240 cars, commercial vehicles and buses, 94 motorcycles, 200 cycles, 25,000 models and around 1 million archive and ephemera items. This unique collection will enthral even the most avid enthusiast but the displays tell other stories too: of invention, vision and enterprise; technology, skill and industry; passion, resilience and hope. Our journey spans 150 years and is told through the stories and products of the people that built an industry and helped build a city.

The majority of the collection is Coventry built or has a strong connection with the city. Coventry has had nearly 600 companies making cycles, motorcars, commercial vehicles and motorcycles. You can find out about their fascinating histories and see vehicles made by world famous names throughout the Museum.
