I love classic cars and this attraction is a delight. The building and vehicles are maintained to a high standard and everywhere is clean and provides easy access. Parking was safe and convenient and suitable for disabled visitors. I was most impressed with the overall experience. The only criticism I have is of one particular member of staff whose rudeness...

The museum is well worth the visit, even if your not a massive car buff. It's interesting and very informative. My only complaints are. Firstly the gift shop, is substantially overpriced, but that's to be expected, all attraction gift shops seem to overcharge. Secondly and bar far, a big spoiler to the day out, the cafe. The food was terrible,... More

Last went here with hubby in 1996; brought our 2 youngest today and we were really impressed. Huge collection of exhibitions, really shiny vehicles, staff were attentive and smart. The building was modernised and the children had loads to do. Best thing is, we can return for free within a year as we signed up for gift aid . Very... More

Went to the museum with both teens and elderly parents. Very enjoyable day and they do have a lot of different vehicles. Kids loved the supercars and american muscle, while my parents enjoyed "memory lane" with the cars of the 50's and 60's. Nice cafe, although we had to wait quite a while to be served - they didnt seem... More

Loads to see and lots of interesting detail. You have to plan your walk route as there is no obvious one and you can easily miss interesting stuff. The volunteers are particularly engaging and well informed. Well worth a visit and a good half day trip.
