Several collections of model cars, some 3500 items owned or on loan from collectors throughout Wales and the West Midlands.Informative and knowledgeable guides on hand.Many old motoring photographs, and a collection of many from a collection depicting the life of Charles Rolls-co-founder of Rolls-Royce. The collections open to the public since Spring 2016 sit in a Grade 2 listed building.probably the largest public collection in Wales.Kids go free and are very welcome.Cars for sale and books too.Kids welcome and go FREE! One collection was built up over sixty years and lay undiscovered for several years until rescued and transferred to it's current home. There is a charming adjacent town museum,; two cafes, pubs and a hotel await your presence. No parking charges, although a little crowded at weekends.
