Coventry Transport Museum

Interesting
Coventry was the birthplace of the British car industry - with Daimler in 1896 - and subsequently home to over 100 manufacturers (Daimler, Rover, Riley, Lea & Francis, Hillman, Triumph, etc.). The Museum of British Road Transport illustrates the industry, its growth and decline in the present century. The oldest models (Riley 1908, Morris 1922) are attractively presented in an authentic street scene but the latest technological progress is also on show.
