The Award winning Coventry Music Museum celebrates all types of sounds that helped put Coventry and Warwickshire on the music map.
From the Coventry Carol to the Specials 2-tone music, Delia Derbyshire to The Enemy, King, Hazel O'Connor, The Primitives and Frank Ifield all have a place in this recently extended museum.
The Lennon Bench, a reproduction 1960s listening booth and a mock up of a Rude Boys bedroom all share the limelight here with a hands-on 'Music Box' interactive room. Have a go at playing a guitar or dress up in the dressing up section to be a 3 minute hero or Judge Roughneck.
The Specials and The Selecter and 2-Tone music will be celebrated as well as Delia Derbyshire in the Radiophonic display.
No booking required
Much of the museum is accessed via stairs. Unfortunately our stair lift is presently out of action.
The Museum is located off the Walsgrave Road in a courtyard between Marlborough Road and St Michaels Road. The archway entrance is adjacent to the pedestrian crossing on Ball Hill. Buses 8, 8A, 9 and 9A come directly from Coventry Rail Station into the City Centre and onto Ball Hill. There is a Pay & Display car park nearby in Clay Lane (CV2 4LJ)
