  • Spent a lovely couple of hours wandering around the museum to keep a 12 year car and lorry enthuiasiast happy. My son loved climbing aboard all the old wagons and buses. I enjoyed seeing a few old relics from my 70s childhood. Not a large building but a good way to pass an hour or two, and good value for money I think.
  • Fantastic Place To Visit. Me And my Family really Enjoyed it. Very Friendly Staff. Will definitely recommend to others. Already planning to go again.
  • Great. I sat in the driving seat of a model T Ford, an Atlantean Bus and on the 'perch' in the PopeMobile.
  • Not a bad collection of vehicles, buses, trucks, engines etc, quite informative and the staff were excellent. Small cafe that did some food and drinks which was very good.
  • Very interesting going back in time to when British engineering existed and was great. Staff are very helpful and informative. The atmosphere around the place is nice and relaxed.
