Due to close this week, Coventry’s successful Doctor Who exhibition has been extended until January 10, 2010 – time enough to add new exhibits from the upcoming TV specials!

This extension – reported in the Coventry Telegraph – sees the popular exhibition announcing some slight changes to its usual schedule over the Christimas period, running seven days a week from 10am until 5pm (with last admissions at 4.15pm), while on December 24th, 25th, 26th and January 1st the exhibition will be closed.

Current exhibits such as the Empress of Racnos and Davros are expected to be joined by artefacts from the upcoming Waters of Mars, as well as the Christmas and New Year specials.

Martin Wilkie, from Experience Design & Management, said: “The museum has been a fantastic venue to showcase Doctor Who and has proved a hit with visitors. We’re delighted to be able to extend the exhibition over the Christmas period and to offer the opportunity for visitors to see the very latest creations from Doctor Who.”

Gary Hall, Chief Executive of Coventry Transport Museum says: “We’re really excited about extending the exhibition and bringing it bang up to date as new adventures hit our TV screens.”

Although entrance to the museum itself is free, there is a charge for the exhibition – check online at www.transport-museum.com or call the Doctor Who exhibition information line on 0871 976 9461.
