Many thanks for visiting, hope you are having a good day.
May I recommend the Coventry Transport Museum to you? We only went in to pass the time until we could visit the Cathedral, but I have to say we really enjoyed it. It was well laid out, the trail led us all the way through the years from early bicycles to cars that had beaten the land speed record - and it was free entry too.
As we followed the main route, there were some interesting interactive displays:
|Film projected onto the screen and table.|
|A moving, talking person in the mirror|
|Another projection in the Planning Department|
|A reconstruction of the Blitz|
|This mosaic contains the two fastest cars in the world - Thrust 2 and ThrustSSC.|
There was a moment of synchronicity when we found Tibor Reich and his sons' entire collection of toy cars! We had only just seen his centenary textile exhibition in the Whitworth Gallery in Manchester!

Looking to the future, Coventry University students had come up with designs as had Swansea University, their design for a potential land speed record was on display, made from knex.
As well as a shop and café, the Museum could keep you entertained for hours - even if, like me, you are not a car fanatic!
