  • This was a nice museum with a few rare cars and interesting history on each. Overall I would have liked it to be a little bigger, but the space they had was jam packed. At the moment they have a Toran...  more »

  • 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 collection of old cars. Spend an hour or so if your not an enthusiast, more of you are. Best collection of motor bikes I've seen anywhere. Leave plenty of time for the gift shop where you'll find lots of vehicle models, motor memorabilia.
  • Awesome selection of automobiles and motorcycles. Great reading and viewing. If you love your cars or bikes come take a look, it's great. Price is reasonable and is only a minute from Launceston city centre.
  • Great experience. Vehicles and bikes kept in pristine condition. Well worth the visit
  • Excellent museum right in Launceston. Reasonably small but excellent displays (cars and motorcycles) and has 4 theme displays per year (was Toranas when I visited). Comprehensive souvenir/gift shop area. Well worth a visit!
