Having been recommended to visit by friends who were there on the Friday we pootled along on the Monday. The place is amazing both for young and old, spotting how many models on display you had in your toybox and wistifully thinking you hadnt modified yours with humbrol enamel!
We were asked by Chris what music choice we would like upon entering, Swiss folklore we replied ...within a minute our choice was coming through the speakers!
We had tea and cake in a very clean cafe, in fact all the displays are spick and span. A quick 5 minute thrash on the Mumby Arena finished off the visit nicely.

Many thanks for your great review Warty B ...!!
I remember your visit very well ...!!
Glad you had such an enjoyable visit, all the way from Switzerland too!
Pleased i was able to transport you back to your childhood toybox!
You'll be pleased that I have played some Swiss Folklore since your visit,
and glad I can find whatever music anyone can ask for too!
Thanks for your very kind comments about my cafe, I take great pride in it.
I also like how you refer to my Scalextric circuit as Mumby Arena!
I look forward to seeing you again sometime ... and thanks again!

Best wishes

Visited with my two children today. Made to feel very welcome by Chris, reasonably priced entrance fee for the museum and plenty of cars to look at. Scalextrix track was great fun for all three of us.

Went with with the family. Sorry to say it is not real value for money and barely takes 30 minutes to complete. Would be better if at least you had some scalextric time included in the entrance fee.

Sorry you feel you were disappointed with your visit felt it not value for money...!
However, it took you half an hour to realise that it wasn't what you expected.
Had you approached me after 10 minutes I would have happily reimbursed your entrance fee.
We charge separately for the Scalextric as many visitors really enjoy it and stay much longer'
Many make use of our cafe too!
As for the entrance fee, if you can find a well established privately owned visitor attraction
with a cheaper entrance fee I would like to know.
Thanks for taking time to leave a review.

Fine for somewhere to go with the family. Have to pay extra to use the scalextric though, £1 for each 5 minutes per person which adds up. Shame as that’s what my son wanted to visit for.

Sorry you appear to be disappointed with your visit VE67 ...!!
You appear to have enjoyed the museum, but you think the Scalextric is expensive!
We charge for the Scalextric to put towards the running and upkeep costs of the the museum
and to keep the entrance fee at a reasonable price.
Hope you will return again sometime!
