Very cold and not value for money better off spending day near harrods Kids didn't enjoy at all one 4 year old a d one nine years old
If you like custom cars and some fantastic tv & film related vehicles then this is well worth a visit if you're in West London. Took my car obsessed 3 year old and he was in 7th heaven meeting both Li... read more »
Muito bom, pena que o valor do ingresso (mesmo para cadeirante, não tem desconto), mas como única vez vale a pena.Very good, pity that the value of the ticket (even for wheelchair, there's no discount), but as the only time worth it.show original
What a hidden gem! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed an hour, strolling amongst some amazing cars: Classics, American, novelty, famous cars (including the Batmobile) and many more! The Museum is very deceptive from the outside, as it looks fairly small but this is not the case! There is also a quirky café with a small gift shop. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We purchased our tickets via Groupon, so found this to be good value.
The name is misleading. The cars are not unique to London, it's more like a custom collection in a large garrage. They do have nice rare cars inside, but very few. Most other cars were in poor condition and void of the detailed vehicle history you would expect to read in a museum. A disproportionate amount of the collection was American customs in Pimp-My-Ride fashion. I'm a big car fan and did enjoy it, but overall the experience wasn't great and the entry price was far too expensive.
What a disappointment!! Firstly if you don't buy your tickets on line, you will pay £30 p/person (£20 students). Not only is this cost way above most of the real London museums, it also isn't worth half that amount. On arrival - There was no parking other than a few spaces at the front, for which you will be charged extra. We spent 45 mins looking for a parking space.This place looks shabby from the outside and the inside is no better.It's an old warehouse without heating, so in February we were freezing cold. Inside- The coffee machine wasn't working, the grubby toilet was blocked and there was only cold water for washing your hands. The staff member who took our money, wasn't friendly and didn't seem interested, he just held his hand out out for the cash. The displays are dirty and some are damaged. There are a few signs giving information, but other vehicles are just parked. In fact some are parked so close together, you can't even get close enough to look properly. Apart from some of the cars from films and TV, there are a great number of custom cars and other vehicles of no particular interest. There is loud music in every area, which becomes very annoying and the whole place is a bit of joke. It certainly isn't worth the money and I wouldn't recommend it all. There are plenty of other more enjoyable car museums to visit that won't leave you feeling that you have been ripped off.
The problem starts with the name. "London Museum" carries a certain pedigree and expectations. Elo (the founder) Car Museum would have created better expectations... But it does not deliver by a LONG shot. The space is utterly cluttered so it comes across more as a parking lot than a car museum. Most units are custom cars rescued from a scrapyard, or originals poorly rebuilt - extra wide mag wheels on a Jag E type is just a sample of what is on store for the visitor. There are some nice cars - a recent Lotus E21 F1, a GT40, McLaren M6 - but they are fenced off with limited visibility. Also, the placed is not heated so bring and extra jacked as it is very cold. And the noise! every area has a louder music than the previous one. Did I mentioned it cost 30£'s? Net, save your money and time and don't let Elo take you for a ride.
Planned to go but it would have cost £75 for a family of three! To judge from the sad wrecks outside, it certainly didn't seem remotely worth it. Went to the RAF Museum instead - which despite being one of the world's leading aircraft museums, is completely free.
