Visited as part of another trip, the museum is a must for any car enthusiasts but also for a trip down memory lane. The centre hosts a collection of many cars from concepts that never quite made production to vehicles used in film such as James Bond. The museum provides a chronology of vehicle development through the ages and includes many family favourites of yesteryear. Well worth the time.

Went as very highly recommended on accessibility uk. I must admit if you are disabled or less. Able to walk long distances or have little people with you it's a must. Fantastic. I really enjoyed it. The Aston Martin exhibit is superb

We used Tesco vouchers to pay our entry fee, for car lovers this is an interesting attraction. A free talk was included which described the early years of the motor car. Some exhibits were children friendly in that they could be sat in/touched, others were non touchable. Food in the Cafe was reasonably priced.

We visited here on a rainy day at the start of our holiday as my husband is into cars but myself and my 8 year old daughter are not! Hence I thought it would be awful but it actually wasn't. The museum is pretty big and I can see for car fans it would be a fantastic outing. So despite my reservations myself and my daughter had a reasonably good time but could only stretch it out to an hour and a half.

There was a childrens easter trail which I helped our daughter with while hubby perused the vehicles. The trail definitely helped to engage her. There are 2 cars you can actually sit in which she loved - shame its only 2 - I think they could do with more - there were more adults than kids getting in them! Also a small interactive section for children to learn about braking etc.

Off road experience really hit the spot - as did the painting a picture using radio controlled cars. We go two or three times a year
