One of the finest motor museums I have visited, massive collection of cars, motorbikes, bicycles, boats and other stuff, with a fairly comprehensive cover of the different ages of all the vehicles on display. Really good to have a museum where you can see most of the exhibits up close making it great for taking photos and seeing the stunning lines and interiors of the old cars up close. Well worth visiting to see the Campbell Bluebird exhibit which has many of the land and water speed record setting cars and boats along with a comprehensive history.
Fabulous place ! An ample cafe and gift shop . Parking is well catered for too. The museum gas a great collection. The information provided is good. Kids get to do a quiz . A great few hours for any age ( especially on a rainy day !)
