  • A great place for car enthusiasts to visit and enjoy. Lots of beautifully restored classics. The people hosting the area were extremely friendly and informative.
  • Very exotic 🚗. Keep in mind that the 🚗 were very old but they were not scummy. I really enjoyed it
  • Excellent collection of cars! I really did learn quite some interesting things. They also have some really nice exotic vehicles :)
  • A real gem! The staff are hugely knowledgeable. Full of vehicles that all have something innovative or technically interesting about them.
  • Amazing museum full of cars there for a reason - all are significant from an engineering and/or design perspective. Owners are super friendly and knowledgeable about the cars - their enthusiasm is contagious! Highly recommended to spend a couple hours taking a very close llook at some absolute classics. Highlights for me were the Panhard Dynamic and the Tatra T-87; the Hotchkiss Gregoire coupe was also really cool.
