Situated on the south side of the city, about 5 miles from the centre. A very good selection of veteran cars as well as more modern ones. A good history of car racing over the century. Toilets and refreshments available plus a souvenir shop.

We visited as a group of four (only one male among us) including 2 serious racing fans, one who can take it or leave it but loves cars generally and the other whose knowledge of and interest in cars extends as far as "it's a red one". Although it is most rewarding and value for money to be a "proper"... More

I took my grandson (13 years old) to the museum, he and I thought it was great. Obviously the newer Audi's, Aston Martin's and Ferrari's initially took his eye.

My husband spent an hour or so around the museum which he found really interesting as they had many exhibits donated by the teams which had historical relevance. I spent the time in the small cafe at the entrance. Staff very helpful.

Easy to reach but public transport - Just a short walk from the tram stop Easy to find and very welcoming on arrival Unfortunately not air-conditioned - which was a pity as we went there on a very very hot day. Staggering amount of cars and items of history there - Much more than we had anticipated.
