  • You could lose yourself in here, I only had 2 hours but felt like 2 minutes. Very interesting exhibition.
  • Fantastic range of old well kept vehicals
  • Stunning collection of rare and interesting vehicles.
  • I traveled over 2 hours to especially visit this museum after looking on the website. It's fair to say it didn't live up to the expectations. Very dispointed not many vehicles on show, would have been better on a bigger outdoor site as I felt the vehicles were too close together. Only stayed there for about 30 minutes then left with trying to find something else in the area to do. On the upside the staff we're pleasent and welcoming.
  • Excellent collection of historic vehicles which are cared for very well. Look out for the green traffic light sticker in the window of the vehicles meaning you can have a sit in the cab.
