Classics Museum, Hamilton

4.4
Go back in time at Classics Museum, dedicated to the cool, slick designs of yesteryear. The museum specializes in classic cars, with everything from the J40 Austin pedal car to the 1974 Fiat 124 Sports Spider. However, the real emphasis lies with retro aesthetics, encompassing automobiles and beyond. Traditional toys and vintage pinball machines complete the look of the museum's exhibit space, while the 1950s-themed diner serves up all things American.

  • Best car museum I have ever seen.So clean & well presented. A credit to the owner who shares his passion for all to see. Had a lovely chat with the owners Father in law who was very informative & friendly. So clad I didn't wait in the Diner as first planned when my husband & son went in. Enjoyed every minute
  • Very good display of rare cars and much more. Worth the entrance fee. Good café too.
  • Great place to visit. Good food. Loved the old cars
  • Great outing! Good varied collections beautifully displayed and the cute diner serves honest food with good value for money!
  • Not really a real dinner. You have to order your food at the counter no waiting staff ... didn't feel the vibe in there
