  • Been here three times with my wife and ended up laughing each time. Old cars, the sweets, bikes you've owned,all there to see. Doesn't seem that long ago when we'd never heard of a pc or mobile phone....  more »

  • Nice collection of early cars. New a few years ago but starting to look tatty in places. I loved the chemist shop and the co-op but there was no information and the plastic screen was so filthy that it was difficult to see through it and into the glass topped cabinets behind it. Also very dark.
  • Nice surprise,in what was on offer, lovely in sight into latter day transportation.Ideal venue to visit for all the family, situated in the old part of the town,drop off only for car visitors,no parking on site.Free entry, to a top notch exhibition.
  • Fascinating for all ages. Lots of see. Indoors great for rainy days. Tea room/cafe would have been great though we found a salt of the earth old fashioned cafe on the street corner just outside the museum.
  • A very enjoyable time wondering around at our own leisure. The tour of the fishing trawler was worth the time and very interesting.
  • This free museum has a nice selection of Old cars, bikes, trams, etc. It's not very big and only took us about 20 minutes to walk around, but your milage may vary.
