“Car Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

If you like classic cars at all, don't miss this hidden gem, tucked away in the middle of Quawra. It is well worth the trip and the seven euro entrance fee.

There are dozens of cars, from the twenties to the seventies (if you ignore the MX5), beautifully restored and presented. You can get up close to all of them, and it's difficult to pick a favourite - the Corvette or the Austin Seven? They're all lovely, as is the large toy collection and even one of vintage outboard motors!

The gem of this collection must be the priceless C-type Jaguar, while the Alfa Romeo group contains one of the rarest and most beautiful cars I've ever seen.

My wife, who is no petrolhead, loved this place too. Highly recommended.

“A GREAT VISIT FOR AN OLD PETROL HEAD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

If you are a car enthusiast this place is a MUST when on Malta.
Even to non enthusiasts there is a lot to see such as furniture and fashions of the age of classic motoring. There is also a fine collection of scale models.
The cars are all very well prepared and the whole museum is a showpiece.
This could be the standard by which other car museums are judged.
It would be difficult to fault it in any respect.

“Memories”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

Brought back so many memories, not just cars, old TV's, juke boxes etc. I was very surprised with the amount of cars as it looks quite small from the outside. Very reasonable charge too.

“a visit on a wet and windy day”

This was an absolutely brilliant find! the cars were amazing and the film being shown about the road race had me engrossed. The cars are looked after fantastically. Definitely worth a visit.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

been there twice myself already and both times I really enjoyed it. Most of these cars you just don't see any more on the road and its amazing to see them shinning under a spot light. So many different cars from different makes and also to help it all out there have classic props around such as an old gas station pump, old radios or televisions.

I am very certain that the owner of it all uses it as a personal garage as well as at the very end there are always a few modern cars. First time there was a Ferrari , Lamborghini, and a Porsche being worked on. Second time there ferrari was still there but also there was an impreza which I know is of one of the members of the local drifting/stunt team Team Maximum Lock.

Very worth going, worth the money.
