Coventry famously gave 2-Tone music to the world. Spawning bands like The Specials, The Selecter, Madness and The Beat. 2-Tone music, as influential as it was, is only a small reflection of the vast musical talents that Coventry can lay claim to.

At the Coventry Music Museum, we tell the real story of our musical heritage, going right back to the Roman occupation. We stop along the way at Music Hall, 50’s Rock’ N’ Roll, the 60’s Beat scene and we even have the Lennon Bench, commemorating the famous ‘Acorns for Peace’ event.

There’s the 70’s, when Coventry ruled the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. Our 80’s area celebrates Hazel O’Connor, The Primitives and of course, King.

In the 90’s we go all Bhangra, then we celebrate Dave Willetts in Phantom of the Opera (we even have his original Phantom mask).

Now it’s The Enemy‘s time, with many unique items from Coventry’s hit-makers here on display. Not forgetting new talent, with our Artist of The Month!

Bar and cafe available.
