Caravans & Charabancs on Display

Caravans & Charabancs exhibition in the Museum

Stories, vehicles, research and highlights from the National Motor Museum Trust and Caravan Club Collections were gathered together to create several displays during the two year Caravans & Charabancs project. A diverse audience from museum visitors to commuters and holidaymakers have enjoyed Caravans & Charabancs in a range of settings.

Heritage Lottery Funding enabled a redisplay of the Museum’s iconic 1926 Eccles caravan and 1922 Maxwell charabanc, helping visitors to better understand leisure motoring in the 1920s. These vehicles were complemented with interpretation exploring many previously untold aspects of the Caravans & Charabancs theme.

Platform Two of Brockenhurst Station in the New Forest, which is on the main line to London, also became home to a display exploring the project story. Local community venues including libraries, schools and the University of Southampton also hosted portable panels exploring the Caravans & Charabancs story in the Dorset and Hampshire area.
