    New motor museum
    A brand new museum in the centre of Taunton, opened by Richard Hammond a few days ago. Located in a former department store, the museum displays a range of beautiful cars and motorcycles, mainly from the 1960s to the 1990s. Lots of nostalgia ! Friendly and knowledgable staff and volunteers. On site cafe. Adults £ 12. Well worth a visit.

    Fantastic walk through the history of motoring
    Really well put together museum with a great collection of cars and motorbikes, and even an aeroplane! This is an attraction that Taunton really needed. I was very impressed with the museum and as a local I will definitely be returning as there is so much to see. Staff and volunteers were very helpful and the cafe is a great addition too!

    Well worth a visit
    I had my doubts about a car museum in the centre of Taunton and I'm still not sure if if will last long term but after visiting it I really hope it does. The place is very well put together and the staff are great, even the owner took time to have a chat. The price is very fair both for entry and the coffee shop. The cars, bikes and general automotive memorabilia will bring back memories for many. If you are going to be in the area and like the classics then pay them a visit, you won't regret it!

    Gem of a museum in the middle of Taunton
    Fantastic museum in the middle of Taunton opposite the castle, offering a reason to actually stop in Taunton rather than drive past to Devon or Cornwall. Amazing selection of vehicles in a tardis of a building, actually think this museum is better than the Haynes motor museum at sparkford. Really friendly staff, a great cafe and a reasonable admission fee. Loved our visit.

    Very nice
    I haven’t ventured round the museum yet, I’m leaving that until next year. I did today though go into the cafe with my daughter. We both had lattes and a bacon sandwich and bacon baguette. They were freshly cooked and absolutely delicious. Good value for money and will definitely use this as my go to coffee/lunch venue. Patrick the owner is such a lovely friendly person and made us feel very welcome. It’s definitely with a visit.

    Wonderful Museum and Café
    Brilliant Museum, the 50s and 60s brought back to life with loads of immaculate examples of mainly British cars and motorcycles. Jaw dropping! The café is a gem run by a warm welcoming staff of ladies with delicious cakes and coffee. Must give it a try for lunch.

    A great selection of vehicles to be seen
    An excellent place to visit. I was surprised at how big it was. I thought I was there for about an hour when, in fact, I was there for over two. A vast array of vehicles which most people can relate too. There's cars, motorbikes and memorabilia to look at and read about. There is also a good cafe upstairs that you can access without going in the museum if you want too. Good value as well. Don't take my word for it, see for yourself. You won't be disappointed if motor vehicles are your thing.

    Great collection of affordable cars.
    Fantastic couple of hours. What a treat for any motor enthusiast of the 80s and 90s.. when cars were fun to drive and could still be fixed on a Sunday morning . Well priced cafe and friendly staff. The best way to spend a rainy morning in Taunton

    This will surprise you!
    This museum was a really great surprise, we had to keep reminding ourselves that we were in Taunton! There are so many wonderful cars and motorbikes, all beautifully presented, with information about each one. And it is so much bigger than it appears from the outside. There is a big, bright, clean coffee shop as well selling a range of things - we succumbed to a large piece of homemade flapjack! The staff we spoke to were all really friendly, smiley and helpful. It is definitely worth a visit.

    ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!
    A gem of a place to visit in the middle of Taunton! You don’t have to be a petrol head to enjoy this place. You’ll find yourself constantly saying, I or my dad, etc, had one of those!! Every single exhibit beautifully presented and a lovely cafe too.

Lovely place, massive inside, loads of cars and bikes, cafe really nice and all members of staff very friendly and welcoming - definitely worth the entrance fee and worth a couple of hours to take a look.

Based in what was the old County Stores in Taunton is the fascinating County Cars Motor Museum.

Incredible range of vehicles which along with the building have been lovingly looked after.

Very friendly and enthusiastic people and a nice cafe. Near main shopping area of Taunton so recommend getting there relatively early.

Well worth a visit. Good value for money

THOROUGHLY RECOMMEND A VISIT

Well. What a surprise. I was expecting half a dozen or so examples.
WOW. How wrong I was
Lost count of the number of vehicles.
Card and motorcycles. ALL in excellent condition.
Helpers all over the place and all very helpful. I had walking aid. Access no problem. Lift to next level
Coffee shop. Again excellent. Quality and customer care.
Sat having cake and hot chocolate.
One of the “Helpers” stopped and chatted for several minutes. Really nice chap.
After he had gone on sweeping as he walked.
Another chap said “I see you met the owner”
I am definitely going back

Superb & well written display boards about each vehicle. Beautifully kept/restored cars on display, certainly a trip down memory lane. The place is like a tardis. It’s spotlessly clean & beautifully presented and the cafe an absolute delight. You don’t have to be a petrolhead to enjoy the visit.

Felt like we'd walked into a TARDIS. So much bigger than you'd imagine.
Wonderfully themed in a way that retains the feel of the old County stores, there's lots to see and super friendly staff.
There's also a lovely cafe that you can use without paying to enter.
Well-done. Would definitely recommend a visit, a great bonus for our town.

What a fabulous museum in the high street of Taunton, parking very easy. The museum was bright and clean with a excellent cafe which was very popular, toilets lovely and clean, and the cars and bikes on display were fabulous, we spent a few hours walking around, a top quality museum that I would thoroughly recommend
