Somerset Day & VE Day Anniversary weekend

8th May 2020, 10.00am – 11th May 2020, 5.00pm

Haynes International Motor Museum  invites you to join in with a celebratory long weekend event that highlights both Somerset Day and the 75th anniversary of VE day. 

Out and about...

As part of the event, our Workshop and Restoration team will restore the World War II Jeep from our Museum collection and tour the area, visiting schools, villages and World War II sites in South Somerset. Our mission is to highlight the important role of Somerset during World War II and uncover some local stories during our road trip. Contact us via  with your story.


Visitors to the Museum during the event can enjoy a special display, together with the chance to handle original artefacts such as weapons, uniforms and equipment.

Further details will be announced shortly.


Events run at the Museum are included with Museum admission. Visit us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for behind the scenes.
