The exhibition is very interesting, even for people who are not that interested in cars. Book ahead and you can get a personal guide. Mario... More

Just the right size and type of museum for me! A lovely collection of some wonderful vehicles and delightfully presented. Very pleasant little restaurant as well. On the day we went there were only a handful of other people there.

Having visited here the same time last year it was wonderful to discover a whole set of different cars on display. This visit is just as nice for people not that interested in cars as the setting is perfect and the gardens lovely.

Good collection of cars on show, each with an information card. Cars are roped off - pity as would have liked to get closer for inspection. Worth a look though.

A really well kept museum. Everything was to perfection. I think all men would enjoy this visit. Even I enjoyed to see all the old cars, A R60 entrance fee feels a bit steep to us pensioners but I suppose in the end its worth the while. I overheard someone say that they have about 200 old cars and that... More

What an outstanding visit. We LOVED the motor museum. It's a stop worth doing. There is information on the cars. It's easy to work through and an absolute delight for everyone - not just petrol heads.

I have been to the FMM a few times and each time it is a bit different. The collection/presentation changes every few weeks so it is always a good visit for the entire family, kids and grandparents!
