The Beaulieu Attraction is pleased to be fully opening its indoor spaces, including the National Motor Museum, from Monday 17th May.  Please see the Beaulieu website for more information.

National Motor Museum Trust Staff are working onsite and from home to continue our mission to engage and inspire you with the story of motoring through our world class collections.

Our Motoring Research Service remains open by email and we are now welcoming a limited number of visitors to the onsite Reading Room. Please see the Motoring Research Service page for more information.

Due to our current circumstances we are unable to accept new volunteers or object donations. Please see our volunteer page and collections page for further guidance.


We are very pleased to be offering Friends and Beaulieu One Hundred events online via Zoom and members will be contacted directly about these.

All previously arranged Friends events have been postponed, however we plan to rearrange new dates as soon as we are able. Tickets purchased already will still be valid for the new date and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. Please see the Friends page for further information.

We have also needed to postpone some of our Beaulieu One Hundred social calendar events and hope to rearrange dates for these to take place as soon as we are able. For further information please see the Beaulieu One Hundred page.

Support us

Like many Museums and Heritage Organisations the past year has been particularly challenging. As a charity, with no core government funding, we rely on supporters and visitors to help us achieve our goals. Please see how you can support us.

You can also make a donation online.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you at Beaulieu.
