  • Three old motorbikes visible through window when closed. Good location, lovely views out across the water and lots of potential, could be vastly improved by opening more often, among other things; for instance there's a lot of windows with exhibit cases backed up against them - maybe if you could see the exhibits through the glass it wouldn't matter so much if it was closed.
  • There really isn't much there. What they have is quite interesting but you can see & read everything in 20 minutes.
  • Waste of time. The Meuseum is tiny with hardly any exhibits. Lots of boards nailed to the wall telling you about the history of Motorsport at Pendine which is interesting but does not make up for the lack of physical exhibits. Its more of a information centre rather than a Meuseum. Still has the usual gift shop selling overpriced rubbish. The place could be great, it does not justify and long drive like we did and left felling disappointed and left out of pocket in regards to fuel costs to get there. You can be in and out of the place in 10 minuets.
  • Great location with great views but boring inside
  • Not a lot to see, in a building at the top of a grotty car park. At least it was free, so I shouldn't really complain I suppose.
