Really enjoyed this - amazing and priceless collection so many with a story too. Had a guide Cheslyinn that was excellent - worth having someone showing you around as it made it very special. What's really good too is they only display 80 cars at once and have many more than this in the collection so rotate the display 6... More

This is a fabulous car museum comprising of 4 huge barns full of gleaming vintage cars owned by the Anton Rupert family. They are set out from early vintage through to contemporary models and we were all awestruck at the range, history of the cars and their perfect condition. We loved it.

If you love cars - this is a MUST see. The museum is a well cared for and the vehicles are in impeccable condition. Because there are so many cars, they do change and swop the vehicles out every so often.

If you like cars - both old and new - and find if fascinating how someone can own THIS many cars, this is the place for you to go. It only takes an hour to walk around and see the whole collection, you can of course take as much time as you want to really suck in all the details.... More

I just can't get enough of this place and I don't even like cars very much. The farm, the setting, the charm makes for a stunning day. there is a deli where you can eat fantastic food and buy some great wine. I have taken a lot of people there as a gift.
