Located in the corner of the Cathedral Ruins, the Blitz Museum is a treasure trove of 1940's memorabilia and artefacts. Visitors will learn more about the Coventry Blitz on 14th November 1940 in our period school room, and will then travel through a typical house of the time and learn more about life in this era from one of our friendly and knowledgeable volunteers.
The museum will ordinarily be open from:
- Saturday: 10am - 4pm
- Sunday: 12pm-3pm
- Weekdays (during school holidays): 10am - 4pm
The Blitz Museum is entirely run by volunteers and sometimes events in the Ruins or inclement weather conditions or volunteer shortages may mean reduced opening hours, so please check in advance by calling 02476 521234 if you are planning on making a special trip.
The Blitz Museum is free to enter but we very much encourage donations to support the upkeep and work by our dedicated volunteers.
The Blitz Museum is staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers and we are always keen to welcome new members to our 'Blitz Brigade'. You can volunteer flexibly - as much or as little as you wish, from a minimum of 3 hours a week upwards. To find out more visit our Blitz Volunteers page.
