  • A great day out for the whole family. Plenty of activities for children and lots of interesting facts to read about. All staff are really lovely. We sat outside and ate our picnic but there is a nice cafe that serves meals as well as lovely treats. Could do with some more outdoor activities for older children. My two were too big for the indoor play area and to big for the tricycles and cars.
  • This is a great day out. The selection of cars is fantastic as I remember so many of these on the roads. Really enjoyed the Jaguar collection and the supercars
  • Great day out if you love old vehicles. Recently refurbished. Looking smart and tidy. Good work.
  • Great museum. Cars from every era and many countries. There's a variety of types of vehicle as well, from family cars to F1 and even a section of motorcycles. Anyone who has even a passing interest in cars should visit.
  • A great selection of different cars and bikes. Quite a collection and well displayed. A point of improvement would be a view in the workshop, because that would be really interesting to see how cars are maintained or restored.
