The interior of the National Motor Museum

The National Motor Museum Trust Limited is a charitable organisation founded in 1972, which runs the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. Continuing the work of the flagship Montagu Motor Museum, the Trust has a world famous collection of vehicles and associated motoring items, which are on display in the National Motor Museum. The nearby Collections Centre houses and cares for a vast array of images, books and items all related to motoring.

The National Motor Museum Trust is recruiting additional trustees who can bring significant expertise and enthusiasm to the trustee board. Find out more.
