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 Blitz Museum may have closed to the public for the winter but it is very much open for schools to visit! Our Education team offer a variety of options for exciting and immersive experiences for all Key Stages. Find out more here.
Our Blitz Museum is normally open on every Saturday between late February and mid-October, as well as on weekdays during Coventry school holidays.
The Blitz Museum is manned entirely by our dedicated volunteers who give up their free time in order to support it, and so whilst the Museum is accessible from 11am until 3pm on these days, visitors should arrive in good time to visit before the Museum is closed at 3pm.
The Museum is a treasure trove of wartime artefacts and we recommend allowing at least 20 minutes for your visit to ensure that you have ample time to browse.
*We recommend checking on our Facebook page Coventry Cathedral Tower Climb and Blitz Museum on the day of your visit in case of any changes to our opening hours, or alternatively by calling 02476 521232.
