An action plan has been set up to help museums easing their way out of lockdown. The scheme, initiated by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC), has started with the release of a new directory listing museums. An interactive map of transport museums across the UK has been unveiled and the Federation’s museum members have since been updating it with details of their activities.

The FBHVC says the aim is to give the nation’s custodians of transport heritage a channel through which they can promote their activities, connect with enthusiasts and clubs plus come together as part of a connected community working towards post-pandemic recovery for all museums. Organisations benefiting from the plan include Grampian Transport Museum, which is currently running an exhibition showing an in-depth look at the past, present and future of electric vehicles, Oxford Bus Museum Trust, which is offering free heritage bus rides on Monday 31 May, and Transport Museum Wythall, now reopening on Saturdays.

The FBHVC, which exists to uphold the freedom to run preserved vehicles on the road, represents more than 500 organisations and 250,000 individuals. The directory is being continually updated, and details can be found via its website at
