    We went specifically to see the Tucker 48 that was on display but were very impressed by the rest of the museum. A broad selection of significant historic cars and motorcycles... This place is well worth a visit... they run themed displays that vary through the year so you never know what will be on show. Will surely visit again :)

    Great cars and history from 1899 to 1980. Spectacular cars of the past. My personal favourite is 1937 SS100 Jaguar. Wow!

    Great collection of cars with a changing display run by volunteers, but the $14 adult entrance fee is a bit steep.

    Small but well presented collection of cars which changes on a regular basis. Well stocked merchandise shop.

    A must see for anyone who likes cars.
