Vision & Purpose

Inspiring people to shape the future through Brooklands’ history of innovation and endeavour.

Brooklands was the cradle of British innovation and endeavour in the worlds of motorsport and aviation. Today Brooklands Museum celebrates the passion, bravery and inventiveness of the men and women who designed, built, raced and flew machines like those in our Collection, on this historic site, throughout the twentieth century. 

Visitors are immersed in Brooklands’ stories and discover for themselves the qualities, skills and ideas of the innovators, pioneers, engineers and adventurers of Brooklands – people whose work changed their world and who can inspire us today to shape the future of our world. 

The Museum has three core purposes: 

  • We celebrate Brooklands, its people and their achievements 
  • We are a place and a community where inventiveness, expertise and competitiveness lives on 
  • We use our Collection and heritage to encourage innovation and endeavour, today and in the future
