    Ian Hope's British Car Museum is tucked neatly into a huge shed/barn in Te Awanga, a sleepy hollow near Napier. It is his lifetime's collection of British vehicles and no car enthusiast should miss it...  more »

  • Great place, Ian is fabulous! Needs a local to help him maintain and keep it going. Loved the fire engine we had great fun learning how to use horn. Thanks Ian
  • Quirky and a little untidy...just the way car museums should be. A pleasant change from your usual high gloss, high end museum, it's more of a work horse...just like the everyday everyman cars that are included. I bet your Grandad had one of those.
  • Awesome car collection, a must see, thanks again, glad to help you out with your trailer /train project, hope the kids love riding in it

  • Worth the visit, although it appears that the collection is getting beyond the owners ability maintain
