  • Worth a visit for motor racing fans. Some interesting cars and trophies on display and some souvenir shopping for the enthusiast.  more »
  • Great display of race cars. Very well done. Also a big collection of race bikes and a lot of background information. Wished I could have stayed longer, but wasn't easy with little kids.  more »
  • It was an opportunity to re-visit the museum i had not been since 1999. Still moves the soul. Some of the cars & bikes on display are very special and important to the history of Australian motorsport...  more »

  • The staff are very friendly and helpful. In the museum there is lots of cars and they all have explanations on who's car and where they were raced. There is also movies on motor racing and a special room and movie on Peter Brock. The gift shop is also reasonably priced. I bought a shirt for $10 and a modal car for $35.
  • You can take a peak at the cars through the door window in the museum store before buying your ticket. Store memorabilia was reasonably priced, though there was little that had only the track's name on it (without "museum"). This was an informal practice day. Afterwards was able to drive to the track area customer parking lot, walk up to the top of the roof and take pictures of the pit lane from above, then walk back down to the area behind the race car garages, where from I was able to take pictures of the inside of the garages and saw others take pictures with some of the drivers. I didn't know any of them do i skipped it!
  • Very disappointed onsite with both the content & complete lack of enthusiasm & service from sales staff. They are stuck in there own little tax payer funded bubble & chose not to be disturbed during our visit.
  • This place is a petrol heads dream. Staff are great best place for top car's the brock tribute is fitting for a aussie hero. Plus mount panorama is here ☺☺☺🙏
  • Excellent display of past racing vehicles, motorcycles and memorabillia. Worth the visit.
