Jaguar Heritage Museum


The Jaguar Heritage Museum offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of this remarkable company. Based on the site of the former Browns Lane plant in Coventry - Jaguar's spiritual home - the museum was opened in 1998 and celebrates the history of Jaguar Cars and associated marques including Swallow, SS, Lanchester and Daimler.  It contains a selection from Jaguar Heritage's collection of over 120 vehicles dating from 1896 onwards.

The collection began life in the mid-1950s when Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons brought together some of his early models. These can now be seen alongside classic Jaguar racing cars and other iconic models from the past. Images, brochures and factory records from an extensive archive give valuable insights into how these beautiful cars were produced.

Jaguar Heritage works closely with schools and colleges to introduce a new generation to Coventry’s motoring heritage, and hosts educational activities at the museum.  It also provides a range of services to owners and enthusiasts including Heritage Certificates, Classic Parts and a shop that offers a wide range of merchandise and technical publications.


    The museum is open during business hours from Monday to Friday and on the last Sunday of every month. The displays change regularly as vehicles are sometimes loaned out for events or to dealers.
