2020 also marks 30 years of the Rover Metro.
Because coronavirus-related restrictions limit physical events, the museum has chosen to go online with the retro nostalgia-infused exhibition.
It is free to explore.
The British Motor Museum has raided its extensive archive for the exhibition, which includes facts, photographs and film clips.
Curators are also asking former (and current) Metro owners to send in their own memories as part of the ‘Metro & Me’ element.
Enthusiasts should email email@example.com.
“We have come up with a new way for people to enjoy the story of the Metro,” said curator Cat Griffin.
“We thought it would be a great subject to present as our first virtual exhibition.”
The museum says the Metro exhibition is part of a drive to open up more of its archives and displays to an online audience.
