British Motor Museum nominated for major heritage award

Leamington Editorial 28th Oct, 2023   0

THE BRITISH Motor Museum has been selected as one of three finalists in the collection category in this year’s Royal Automobile Club Historic Awards.

The annual awards recognise outstanding achievements within the British historic motoring and motorsport world.

A major factor in the Gaydon museum being shortlisted was its 30th anniversary exhibition Transitions: the Impact of Innovation, which looked at the changing face of car design and motoring.

Museum head of collections Stephen Laing, said “We are delighted to be shortlisted as a finalist in the collections category, especially in our 30th year, which is a great testimony and recognition of the hard work the entire team undertakes.

“In 1993, the British Motor Museum opened its doors for the very first time. A charity from the start, public support has helped the museum collect, conserve and share the collections to inspire this generation and the next.

“Since that first day, the collections have grown dramatically, and millions have passed through our doors to discover the history of the motor industry in Britain, through over 400 historic British vehicles and our amazing archives.”
