Visited here today. We found the collection very well laid out lots of interesting information for each car clearly laid out. Motorbike collection too and other motor paraphernalia regarding motoring. Brought back memories of my parents cars that they owned in the past.

Friendly and informative staff, could not be more helpful. You are allowed to get up close and personal with the cars, they just ask you no to touch, understandable! You can move the information stands to take pictures, a real treat of a museum that...More

Well worth going on one of their show days, you get to see inside the museum too all included in the price, my little one loves the old fashioned swings & slides there, goodness knows where they found them.

Excellent collection of cars including the early years, 50s and 60s and even early American cars. They could do with more space but a really interesting visit. Recommended.
