About

Scooters: British Born, Italian Matured, Adopted by a Rebellious Youth.  The exhibition highlights the birth of the scooter through to its ‘Mods’ adoption in the 60s.  Conceived originally as a ‘step through’, small wheeled motorcycle for ladies and casual users and largely forgotten in the 30’s and 40’s the motor scooter went on to resurrect the devastated Italian transport Industry post WW2. 

By the time the austere 1950’s were being played out the Scooter had gained ‘chic’ status all over Europe.  In the 60’s a UK group of youthful fashionista’s known as ‘Mods’ took the scooter as their transport of choice.  The scooter in all its guises has assumed cult status.

Café 750 will have a special menu and anyone arriving on two wheels can get into the museum for group rate.  “It’s now or never” - let your hair down and enjoy a ‘cool’ day out at the museum.
