“all most perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

This was very good as I am a petrol head. The range of cars, bikes buses, fire trucks and even missile launchers are great! There is even a devoted Rolls-Royce section, but children are not allowed as there is no barriers to stop them. I really loved the old London bus as you can get on and see. Sadly, the boat is no longer available as it has rotted away and is no longer safe. The airplane section is near the gift shop and has a lot of model airplanes. My only criticism is that the roof is leaking on rainy days but that is forgivable as the staff are lovely and the atmosphere is nice and calm. We saw a family here and saw them again at Duxford airplane museum!! there is a small fee to get in...

“You don't have to a petrol head to enjoy this museum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We have just been to the museum with visiting family during a wet half term week. We could not believe the range of different vehicles which are displayed, from cycles through to a missile launcher. As this is a private collection and museum, they have no government or lottery money to rely on and this is a little obvious with the dated décor and leaky roof - but please don't let this put you off. Apparently it took the owner 45 years to build up the collection and this we could definitely believe. This is little gem of a museum, you will find yourself keep saying things like - "oh my goodness (or something similar!) can't believe they have got one of those". It also helps in a place when the staff are friendly and the toilets clean.

“Motor car enthusiasts dream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

The first and most striking thing I noticed on walking into this museum is the friendliness and casual attitude. If you're looking for posh pomp and a snooty restaurant ...you're not going to find it here! My Husband & Son are true Motor-heads, they LOVED every minute at this museum. You can touch the cars and peer inside, stand next-to the displays and discuss your memories without being rushed along. There are no open spaces to bore you, every inch of the place has something displayed. Even a huge missile carrier, with the missile on-board. It just goes on and on with something different and delightful around every bend. The ladies in the cafe offer a very friendly and efficient service. Good value for money all round. My only criticism is that there is nowhere for the elderly to have a little rest on the long journey through the display. It's a little like Ikea, no short-cuts back to the cafe. Wonderful none the less!

“Shambolic and fascinating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

An amazing collection of old cars housed higgledy piggldey in a series of leaky sheds.
Whether you are aged 19 or 90 you will find that first car you ever owned here.
