The Brooklands Museum Trust

Brooklands is the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation and also the site of many engineering and technological achievements through eight decades of the 20th century.

The Brooklands Museum Trust is an independent charitable trust established in 1987, whose aim is to conserve, protect and interpret the unique heritage of the Brooklands site.

The Brooklands Trust Members are the official support group for the Museum and that support is invaluable in helping to realise the Trust's objectives and keep the Museum running, whilst also offering many benefits to the Members themselves, including free entry to the Museum.

To find out more about the Museum and the history of Brooklands visit the Museum website

QUOTES FROM OUR MEMBERS

"We have really enjoyed our Membership at Brooklands visiting 4 to 5 times a year - Brooklands provides an exciting and value for money day out for any age"
Julia Curnow (Brooklands Trust Family Member )


"We have had a lovely year visiting the Museum and the children have had a lovely time (although the car ride on the slope was one of the scariest experiences of my life as a parent!). The staff have been wonderful and made every visit enjoyable - even though my 6 year old thinks he knows it all now as he has been so many times!"
Nicola Fawcett (Brooklands Trust Family Member )
