The Silverstone Interactive Museum is an immersive visitor attraction which celebrates the past, present and future of Silverstone and British motor racing. Over 60 hands-on exhibits give visitors the opportunity to try out a variety of activities – from operating a wind tunnel, taking part in a pit stop and climbing into a replica Grand Prix car.
In addition to the hands-on fun, the museum features some of the most iconic cars and bikes that have played a part in the 70-year history of Silverstone including Mansell’s iconic “Red 5”, an E.R.A from the first ever Grand Prix and Barry Sheene’s 1979 Suzuki motorbike.
A thrilling immersive film show – the ultimate lap of Silverstone – brings together some of the circuit’s most famous racing moments and is the perfect way to round off your museum visit.
Step outside the rear of the museum and walk along the Heritage Track trail onto the old race track where you can catch a glimpse of the action on the current circuit. Take your time and have some refreshments in the café where you can sit overlooking the circuit. This is a great experience that everyone will enjoy.
Please note that due to circuit activity the Heritage Track Trail will not be open every day, so please check in advance of booking if you would like to go on this walk.
Pop in the shop and browse the range of exclusive merchandise or visit the trackside café for a tasty treat. https://www.silverstonemuseum.co.uk/plan/visitor-information/cafe-shop/
