Travel Back in Time
An amazing pre-show kicks off the interactive museum tour. To begin your Silverstone visit, go through the tunnel to enter the virtual grid and prepare to travel back in time. Meet racing drivers and technicians from the past and present as they prepare their cars to race around you. As the race begins, hear the motors roar, and then begin your journey into the heart of motor racing.
A Legendary Past
Silverstone is rich in history, even down to the names of the straights and bends! Where did Copse, Stowe, and Wellington come from, though? The Silverstone Interactive Museum starts with an explanation of how Silverstone came to be known as "The Home of British Motor Racing."
Begin at a mediaeval monastery, then go on to an 18th century country home, and last to a WWII airfield. We bet you didn't realise that Silverstone was inspired by a very renowned landscape artist from the 1700s, whose first name was Lancelot.
Learn about the men and women who fought here during WWII, see their original uniforms, and discover how Wellington bomber pilots trained to fly. Shooting barrage balloons and utilising the Link Trainer, an identical replica of the RAF's pilot training equipment, are two of the hands-on activities.
Original equipment is on display, as well as amazing wartime heroic tales and sad memories of those who died while training at Silverstone.
Learn more about the town that gave its name to the country's most famous racing circuit, as well as the surrounding area. Several unlucky drivers and riders ended up among the fields when racing started in the late 1940s!
Listen to fascinating rural stories and keep an eye out for the elephant in the replica pub...
The future of RAF Silverstone as a Wellington Bomber training station remained uncertain after WWII. Because pre-war racetracks had been seized by the military, racing enthusiasts were on the lookout for new ones.
The wide open areas and runways at Silverstone would be perfect for one of the world's most famous racing circuits. Discover how a group of racers crept into an abandoned airfield and transformed Silverstone into a racing circuit in 1948, which would later host the Grand Prix!
Let's Start the Race
Exit the museum through the stairwell and enter Silverstone. Feel the rush as you take in the sights, sounds, and smells of race day.
Race Day gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the world of motor racing. You can get up close and personal with some amazing racing cars as well as support vehicles.
It takes a lot of effort to organise a race. Learn everything it takes to handle a busy race day from race marshals to the medical centre. Sir Jackie Stewart will talk on circuit safety, among other things.
You may even commentate on a race in our interactive game (we'll show you how).
