Cotswold Motoring Museum, Bourton-on-the-Water

(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Discover an extensive collection of motoring memorabilia and toys from the 20th century at Cotswold Motoring Museum. The museum features a large collection of vintage and classic cars and motorcycles, campers, and original enamel motoring signs. Listen for period music as you peruse photos and items from past eras, most notably the extensive toy collection. Housed in the museum is "Brum," from the popular BBC children's television series; you can make a brass-rubbing of the car as a souvenir. The museum also displays periodically changing motoring exhibitions. Don't be fooled by the appearance: The museum is much larger than it seems from the outside.

  • Good place to while a couple of hours away if you like cars, bikes or even toys, £5.75 entrance fee well worth it, absolutely packed with stuff  more »
  • It was a good experience overall. Museum looks small from outside but was surprised to be proven wrong once inside.  more »
  • Popped in for the first time and glad we did,it's less than £6 each and if you take the time to look, watch and read about the array of old cars and motorbikes you can spend a good hour in this tardis...  more »

  • Thought we'd pop in as we were in the town and weren't expecting a huge amount, but were very pleasantly surprised! A lovely selection of cars and artifacts, all nicely presented and with lots of interesting facts and figures around them. If we had one complaint it would be I quite liked a t-shirt in the gift shop but they didn't have it in the right size.
  • A real treasure trove of transport related (and other) memorabilia. No matter how many times you visited I am sure you would spot something you had not seen before. Highly recommended.
  • Visited Bourton on the water for our honeymoon i wanted to visit the motor museum but i have to say wasnt expecting this to be as good as it was Totally gobsmacked and fascinating The motor museum is amazing £5.50 each for an adult for what you get to view is a bargain Some really lovely articles on display 8 rooms full of HISTORY looks tiny from the outside but wow u wait until u go in ☺ Brilliant place to visit cant wait to come back with the children my boys are going to love this Gift shop a little expensive but some beautiful gifts available Can i also quickly say the gentleman behind the counter is very polite and will even tk time out to talk to u about the memorabilia Highly recommend and certainly will visit again
