About the Cotswold Motoring Museum & Toy Collection

Located in the beautiful Cotswold village of Bourton-on-the-Water, the Cotswold Motoring Museum is a fascinating journey through the 20th Century.

Though the main focus is on motoring, the Museum is full of the everyday paraphernalia that made motoring so popular including picnic sets from the 1920s, alongside caravans, radio sets, gramophones and knitted swimsuits.

Throughout the Museum there are showcases packed with memorabilia. Can you imagine a car alarm that fills the car with smoke? A mechanical hand used for indicating? All these items are enveloped in an atmosphere of the era created by hundreds of advertising signs and music of the time.

The Cotswold Motoring Museum is the 'Home of Brum'.

You can visit Brum at his home and see where he was filmed. The little super hero car, whose adventures start and end at the Museum, can be found at the Museum everyday.

Brum is regularly shown on the BBC, so keep a look out for him.

At the Museum you can have your photo taken with Brum, take a ride on our special Brum, make your own individual Brum brass-rubbing and also take home a special Brum gift to remember your visit.
