The museum is good and the vehicle descriptions are perfectly adequate. The museum staff are friendly and helpful. The food in the cafe is expensive and should be of better quality. Several of us had lunch there - the beef and horseradish sandwich was not made with fresh bread and the beef was tough and tasteless, The salad bar's ingredients... More

Visited this museum unplanned after seeing the signs from the motorway. On approach to the museum we were waved away from the main entrance by staff, and carried on along the road as directed. As holders of a disabled blue badge we then followed signs to the disabled parking, which took us back round to the main entrance. This time... More

Museum was good but after 2 hours needed a cup of tea and a sit down and the whole of the cafe and surrounded area packed. Not by anyone eating but by undergrads sprawled across every table shouting at the tops of their voices. According to cafe staff no one bought anything and it was an undergrad open day.

I visited on an afternoon in June 2015. There were lots of vehicles, but the lack of information about them was disappointing. One display board gave more information about the plastic surgery on the vehicle designer than about the vehicle. I've been to several other motor museums which, in my opinion, have presented their vehicles in a much more informative... More

My wife and I travelled here for the 2015 Banbury Run. We took the opportunity to visit the museum which was extremely interesting and laid out well. Restaurant was busy, but the staff very attentive and friendly. Worth a visit !

We visited the motor museum for the first time. It was great my two boys really enjoyed themselves. The staff were extremely friendly and they really helped out especially at lunch time in the cafe. The changing facilities were clean and tidy. The only downside was getting from the car park using a shuttle bus. The bus was busy and... More
