Not having been aware of this museum before going, I was delighted and amazed by it. A huge range of cars and other vehicles, all very well displayed and in immaculate condition. Strongly recommended if you have an interest in old and not-so-old cars. Even if you don't, you will enjoy it. Good café too.

There's lots of information about all the cars, my partner loves cars but I'm more disinterested but even I had a good time looking at them! All of them are very well kept and you can tell the people working there clearly have passion while cleaning them to make them sparkle in the light! Would have definitely given 5 stars... More

Always wanted to have a look at this museum, I was not disappointed it is fantastic , exhibits are truly fantastic, friendly staff and a cafe that did not charge the Earth.

All members of our family enjoyed this visit, aged 8 to 72. There is lots to do and see for a few hours visit, including outside play area and games room for children. Loved the brass rubbings (and so did my son), the dress up area for photos and the Easter egg hunt was a big hit. Will definitely return... More

Visited here with our four children, there was an easter bunny hunt on when we visited which was brilliant for getting the kids involved and learning more facts about the various cars on display, they even earned some sweets for completing it! A huge range of cars and bikes are on display here with details and interesting facts about all... More

So much to see even if your not a car geek! The cars are fabulous, 'Red Room' is awesome with so many different vehicles, including a lovely Ford Mustang in the entrance hall. Mark Webber RB6 exhibit is well done telling the story of Marks wins and incidents in the 2010 Formula 1 season all narrated by the man himself!... More

We visited during a school holiday so was expecting large crowds but it was actually relatively quiet which was surprising as it was lovely. We spent three hours marvelling at their over five hundred piece collection and I would say that It is better than Beaulieu .

They really have an awe inspiring collection of cars, motorbikes and scooters. There was many types and models I have never come across. Lots of gems to discover. The building has easy parking and the exhibits are very well laid out. Lot's of good information and history supporting the vehicles. 100% recommend anyone to go and visit. Worth the ticket... More
