  • Top auto museum. Some unusual cars that I don't recall seeing before.
  • Surprisingly large collection of historic cars and memorabilia, very interesting
  • Very nice museum with lots of cars and other things such as caravans, gramophones, signs, typewriters, phones and much more. Everything on display is in very tidy condition and has information next to it. Some of the cars on display are quite rare and it's very interesting to see how it all evolved. I really enjoyed the stay and yes, it is a bit like a travelling back in time. Don showed us around and played the gramophone for us which was fantastic and really added to the atmosphere.
  • Great spot of motoring memorabilia, however a little out of the way (a number of locals i met didnt know it was thete). A lot of vecicles pre 1950. Been there a numer of times and learn something new. Ps ask about the queens carriage.
  • i absolutely love this place , gr8 mix of cars , motorbikes , trucks , petrol bowsers , signs etc etc , friendly & informative staff . i've been twice & can't wait for my 3rd visit . if you love the early 1900s , you'de be doing yourself an injustice not to visit this museum . cheap to get in too .
