Brilliant, a trip along memory lane and not just for car enthusiasts. Somewhere to cherish & to return to which we certainly will.

Much better than expected. The rooms go on and on through the ages. Lots of other memorabilia too inside the cars, on the ceiling and in cabinets etc. Well worth the £6. Entrance adult fee. No concessions.

A wonderful collection and a very nostalgic visit especially for those of a certain age who can remember so much of these vehicles and products. At £6 an adult this is great value.

This museum has been a labour of love for several people. There are some exquisite cars on show. You need to stop and examine the cabinets to see how motoring has developed. On a really personal note I loved the toy section. Looking in the...More
