  • We had imagined something different among them. 4 euros, you get insight into a warehouse, so crammed with cars that you can not look at all. The vehicles rot away. I think that the sight of such vehicles is pressing not only tears of joy in the eyes of a collector or car fan.

  • A nice place for coupling with visit of the Castle. The caretaker is an old man very sympathetic. The means are too close sometimes and not at all you can climb but it's a nice trip to the past.

  • A lovely quaint museum, a disgrace it's not state funded, as it's clearly doing the very best it can in a small space
  • Great day out and really interesting. Kids loved it and it was a great journey down memory lane 😊
  • Great selection of vehicles and friendly staff!
  • Brings back good memories
  • Like the way it wasn't that organised and the way it wasn't very "safe". Great to see all these vehicles.
