The Ford Transition exhibition is touring

New dates for 2019

If you missed the hugely successful Ford Transition pop-up museum which ran for seven days at the former Ford site in April 2017, don't despair! Elements of the cargo container exhibition will be touring Hampshire venues from spring 2019.
