The car museum is an interesting museum because there are cars from the start of the automobile age. However I think that the old cars with old paint jobs should be repainted to make them look better.

As it says on the tin really - a museum of automobiles. A large display of automobiles from the past. Note that they close during siesta. Sometimes they host a vintage fair in the parking area next to the museum where you can find some hand made items and craft products to buy.

There are more famous and stunning cars elsewhere but none better laid out and presented than this gem. I dragged my wife along to the exhibition and we spent two very enjoyable hours admiring the variety of motorised vehicles, including Franco's HS and the Royal family Merc. The museum is superbly laid out, lots of information available and over 100... More

This is on the opposite side of the road to the beautiful Casa Lis (Art Nouveau and Art Deco Museum) and you can buy a two-for-one ticket (4.00€) from the Tourist Information Office in Plaza Mayor. Wonderful collection of vehicles laid out as a timeline of development. There are examples of many ‘classics’ (no spoilers, go and see for yourself!)... More

We had a few hours to spare and being a car guy I dragged my wife along to see it and the Art Nouveau museum across the road. (Buy the ticket at the tourist centre in Plaza Mayor for a 2 for 1 cost of 4 euros). It was a great exhibit. Not full of great cars but well put... More

The web site says the museum is open at 5pm but it does not open until 5:30, they should change the website, many people walked away probably assuming it was closed. The museum itself was quite interesting with a wide variety of cars,on show. It is not very big,,it only took 35 minutes to walk about the whole thing, the... More

We have visited several vehicle museums in Europe but none to compare to the range and number of vehicles here! There is something for everyone to enjoy and admire. This was our last day and we found that we had run out of time. We wished we had been able to spend at least 2-3 hours here instead of 1.

A really interesting and well laid out motor museum with many interesting exhibits. However, what really made it for me was the superb collection of Hispano Suiza's. You don't think of Spain as a great car nation but then see what can be done in collaboration with the Swiss - simply stunning and a chance to see a collection probably... More
