  • Extensive show of cars and bikes, along with the full history of not only Motor Racing in Australia, but the progression of the track Mt Panorama - THE Mountain! 
  • We stayed at the motel on the circuit, Rydges, Mt Panorama. The Museum is only 100mtrs down the road. The history in here was fantastic. From the early racing days, motorbikes and the V8's, it's all h...  more »
  • A nice quick little peek into the world of Mount Panorama and motor racing. If your a fan of racing history and V8 supercars, would recommend it as worth your time.

  • Somewhat disappointing as there were no Ford GTs apart from an XR. You would think the XW and XY would be represented at Australia's premier museum of motor racing. One GTR XU1 and one Sierra Cosworth turbo on display. NO NISSAN SKYLINE GTR !?!?! The museum is interesting, but far from representative of the location and it's history. If it was not for Wayne Gardner's NSR500 from 1988, I would have rated this museum as one star.
  • Awesome selection of bikes and cars. Plenty to see. For my son, the cross section engines and gearboxes were fascinating.
  • Fabulous historical information and racing merchandise. The receptionist is very helpful and friendly.
  • Great place to learn the history of the mountain, the cars that raced there and the legends that drove them.
  • Must place to visit for Motorsport enthusiast. Well maintained large collection of cars and motorcycle exhibits. Absolutely wonderful.
