Classics Museum, Hamilton

(4.2/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This place is fantastic if your a car enthusiast, so many beautiful cars and some incredible memorabilia!  more »
  • The Classics Museum is a wonderful addition to the list of places that I will strongly advise visitors and residents alike to go and see. There is lots to see and many trips down memory lane to be had...  more »
  • Hamilton itself is dire, but out on the freeway its worth a stop at the car museum. Funky 1950's cafĂ© with great food. Inside the museum many mainly (not totally) 1950's cars in immaculate condition. ...  more »

  • We had no idea this place even existed until browsing the information in our hotel room. After spending a few hours wandering around the museum, taking lots of photographs, and dreaming about taking one or two cars home.
  • Walked in and ignored by staff, manager popped head head out of kitchen and ignored service all tables looked like they hadn't been cleared and only 12 customers in there max worst service I have experience on hamilton.
