Specialty Museum
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.

  • Have been here twice and the owner rotates his vehicles with a number of others he has stored elsewhere. Great to look back in time at the vehicles (not only cars) of era's gone by.  more »
  • Great array of beautiful cars presented beautifully. Cafe is scrumptious! Quirky rock roll Elvis themed.  more »
  • What a pleasant surprise this car museum is. A fantastic range of very collectable and rare vehicles and memorablia. A good cafe for a bite to eat too. I will be going back, that's for sure.  more »

  • A very beautiful museum with a very nice extensive car collection. Very enthusiastic owner. Bring your Dutch guilders and quarters for the pinball-machine. Hours of fun of car history and technique.
  • Popular place for CSC vans stopping over in Hamilton. Handy to central area
  • Its free parking but no toilets Nice cafe free WiFi new building being put up at rear but does not disrupt. Campers Campers must be self contained. Take all rubbish away when you .leave
  • I love it here because we can stay for free in our motorhome. Also the diner is great. Nice food and friendly staff!
  • Very interesting collection of cars. Well worth the visit. Lovely 60s style dinner Caffè as well.
