Jaguar packing up its heritage museum
Jaguar has confirmed that in September it will pack up the contents of its heritage museum, ending another chapter of history at the Browns Lane site.
But all is not lost, and in fact the move could prove a good one because Jaguar is looking for new premises - meaning a bigger, better and more accessible Jag heritage museum could emerge.
The closure of the museum, which houses around 30 classic Jaguar cars from a total heritage collection of 150, became inevitable when the company sold the Browns Lane site to Australian property company Macquarie Goodman in 2007.
The museum is one of the last remnants of Jaguar history standing at the site - a site on which all Jaguars were built until the late '90s. The assembly factory was demolished in 2008.
According to Autoweek, Jaguar is looking to lend heritage cars out to various sites for display around the Coventry area until a proper home can be found. The Coventry Transport Museum is a potential temporary suitor.
