Really enjoyed the visit. Some beautiful cars from every era. Informative staff and even a bike and a car our son could "drive" and have a photo in! The cafe was rather overpriced but otherwise an enjoyable hour or two.

With 2 4 year old twin grandsons in tow I was not sure what to expect The displays were excellent with such a variety that we were all entertained. The brass rubbing plates were a brilliant idea that the 4 year olds found great fun. The cafe was spacious and had a wide variety of choice at reasonable price. A... More

Plenty of activities for children my son did a top trumps quiz, filled in a booklet which meant searching for answers around the site and went on missions from the education centre, each mission completed a key ring was given as a prize. Stopped for lunch in the... More

Always wanted to visit and was not disappointed. Very well laid out and spent 3 hours in there. If you like cars, you won't be disappointed. Plenty to see with various themes. We used the restaurant and had some lovely soup. There were games for young children to enjoy.

Found this museum by accident - very impressive collection of cars, motorbikes and scooters from early days to more recent. Beautifully maintained - cars were immaculate - more shiny chrome than you could ever wish for. Loved the Red Room and the luxury American vehicles from the 1930s - best of all was seeing examples of just about every car... More
