  • 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.
  • Traditionally what you'd expect for a museum. All exhibits in one room.
  • If you are into historic vehicles, then this is when a visit. Unfortunately you can't go in the cabs of most of the collection, but it is still interesting. It charts the history of commercial vehicles, especially trucks and British marques, over the years. Highlights include the Popemobile from John Paul II's visit to the UK, which you can go inside of!
  • Must go place
  • Fantastic
