National Motor Museum Trust

National Motor Museum

The National Motor Museum Trust is the independent charity responsible for the governance of the National Motor Museum and its collections.

Continuing the work of the flagship Montagu Motor Museum, the National Motor Museum Trust aims to preserve and promote motoring heritage as the custodian of a world famous collection of vehicles and associated artefacts which are on display in the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu.

Within the Beaulieu complex, the National Motor Museum Trust’s Collections Centre houses and cares for a vast array of images, films, memorabilia, books, publications, archival material, parts and other motoring related objects and artefacts. These collections have been awarded Designated status – official UK government recognition of their outstanding national importance.

The Collections Centre also accommodates two distinct collections:

  • The Caravan and Motorhome Club Collection contains over a century of archival material and memorabilia from one of Europe’s premier touring organisations and its many thousands of caravan-owning members.
  • The Shell Heritage Art Collection is one of the most important collections of commercial art in the world, featuring the work of well-known British artists from the 1900s to the 1980s.
