We enjoyed this museum as a stop from Dartmouth to Gatwick. Easy drive off highway. My husband is more of a car & motorcycle enthusiast than myself but it was interesting for me as well. The building is huge & modern & they have cars from every decade. We enjoyed dressing up & taking photos while sitting in an antique... More

Sunday morning. Not very busy. Seems to be a good time of the year to visit, as I am sure it is a lot busier in the summer. If you are of an age and an inclination, you like the smell of petrol and WD40.....This the one for you. I am 54 ( I know I don't look it :D)... More

A little costly but well worth it. They have a massive selection of cars and motorbikes. All with their own little imformation boards. We didn't know where to start as there's so much to do and see. Very friendly staff that are more than happy to answer a few questions. Love how they have little activities for children to do... More

At a cost of just under £30 for two adults I hoped for a little more. We walked round in under 45 minites and, quite frankly, we were not inspired to return. More staff than visitors.

We were staying nearby, and decided to spend some time here. We arrived at lunchtime, so tried the cafe out first. They were able to accommodate a gluten-free diet, and the food was lovely. Cars are not really my thing, but once we went through to the exhibition halls, I found it breathtaking. I left my husband to it (once... More

Visited on a Sunday Afternoon when it was very very quiet. Tip when paying use gift aid as this allows free entry for a year as you will want to re visit. Haynes has a good selection of cars in various halls that is accessible to the disabled. There are lots of additional areas to keep children entertained. Lots of... More

When we last visited this museum we understood that it was to be redeveloped and following this they reopened in 2014. Our second visit was longer coming that anticipated but justified two visits within a long weekend. The new layout provides everything they had before but with a greater amount of space and facilities. A large foyer leads to the... More
