If you are a car buff, this is the place to visit. The train car and engine collection is impressively presented in a small space. Getting up close to the engines gives you a great feel for their monstrous proportions. Look overhead and read the...More

This isn’t the easiest place to get to, and needed some planning as well as use of our SatNav, because it doesn’t seem to be in walking distance of anywhere, nor on a particularly convenient bus route. There were hardly any other visitors when we...More

This is a great museum with a big variety of antique cars, bikes, and other vehicles to look at. I'm not even that into cars and I really enjoyed it! The trains were neat to see as well. Worth a visit.

Loved looking at all the cars, trains, motorcycles, bicycles, of all types and ages! Going into the steam train to see all the controls was cool. The bicycles were very interesting. Worth a stop.
