  • A great place to closely examine some of the more iconic cars and motorcycles of Australian motoring history. Well laid out and so clean you could literally eat from the floor. Signage and information is very good and does not leave many questions about what you are looking at. Allow and hour or more to view the exhibits and another 30 minutes to ponder the gift shop. If you are looking for a car related or miniature model, this is the place to find it. There are no guides inside the museum, but there are a few at the front desk happy to chat and answer questions. Well worth the time and money, and as a bonus, Hogs Breath Cafe is across the road.
  • Good museum with some unique displays of Holden racing and sports cars. Not to big but worth visiting when in Launceston. They also have a display of motorcycles
  • Good range of cars and bikes on show. Check the theme prior to visiting as they change every few months. Worth a visit if your interested in cars or bikes.
  • Good mix of cars with some good representation of Aussie muscle cars, some early European cars and a mixture of motor bikes. They change thier feature exhibition quarterly which makes it worth going back to time and again. Gift shop has an excellent selection of automotive related products (clothing, books, diecast etc). Well worth checking out for ppl that like things with wheels.
  • Rev heads you will love it. Large changing selection of all types and ages of cars and motorcycles. Cheap and good value. Souvenirs also available.
