Here for culture

We're a museum and we are #HereForCulture

It was wonderful to open our doors again on 17 May and welcome visitors back to the Silverstone Interactive Museum. We were extremely grateful to receive a grant of £775k from the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund in April which has been a vital support.

After a challenging 12 months we are delighted to be reopening with a name that better portrays what we offer at the Silverstone Interactive Museum which is a fun, educational and hands on day out.

Since the official opening by Prince Harry and Lewis Hamilton on 6 March 2020 we have had three long periods of closure as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. This has been incredibly frustrating and resulted in us having a very limited time to welcome visitors and build the charity’s cash reserves.

We are extremely grateful to the Culture Recovery Fund for recognising the difficulties we have faced and for awarding the grant. We are delighted to be open once again and are looking forward to a busy and successful summer. #hereforculture
