Small museum but every inch crammed. Lovely feeling of nostalgia in all the collected bits and pieces - cars, bikes, signs and equipment. Memories too of my children watching 'Brum' when they were young. The title sequence was shot here.

This is a must see for anyone who has an interest in vintage cars. There is a lot to see and will take you awhile but it's really good, and the kids will love it to.
