    It is a museum spread out in two halls. I got to see a carriage dating back to the 17th-18th century and One can see the evolution from those days to the era of the car.  more »

  • Very disappointed that when we decided to make the trip on the Tuesday they had decided to take another day off. We weren't the only disappointed travellers. Opening times should be better publicised.
  • It was very beautiful, but you're going through it very quickly. You can do this quick museum in two hours, but definitely worth all two of them!
  • So interesting to see how they keep the carriage so well. I enjoyed the visit very informative
  • Who knew - a coach museum can blow you away! Very well designed space that brings history to life.
  • Definitely has to be one of the more unique museums that I have been to. An amazing collection of coaches which tells the story of this particular era in transportation right down to the uniforms that the staff would have worn. Some of the collection is amazingly functional while other parts is so beautiful.
