Visited in late July. Had been here some years ago & somehow there seemed to be less here than before. Maybe my memory is playing tricks. Nevertheless it is still an excellent way to look & learn while passing a few hours.

We were here at a buses festival but spent more time in the museum as it was so very interesting. Also has a good restaurant.

This attraction had more than I expected. Lots to see and plenty of activities to keep the children's interest. It also has a nice café. Good value for money overall.

Took nephews (13 and 18) and my kids (5 and 6). My kids had been before and as we had purchased a gift aided ticket earlier in the year it allowed us to get in for free. The cost for nephews was slightly more. However, they did enjoy the museum and the vehicles, although my two were a little impatient... More

A thoroughly worthwhile venue to visit to for motoring enthusiasts young and old alike. The circular road is a clever way to help you take the journey through the years of improvements to both cars, roads, road signage, motoring legislation and more. Its very interesting. The museum houses many and varied cars from the hotchpotch history of British car manufacturers... More

Lovely place with lots of cars. Kids loved it and think it's the best place. They enjoyed watching the films too. I liked the cars from the movies such as Judge Dred car, Room Raider jeep and James Bond cars. F1 and Le Mans cars were also smaller than I thought. My main problem was a lack of seats around...

We visited this attraction on our way down to Oxford from Solihull following a friend's recommendation. There is an impressive number of vehicles, including ones used on various famous movies. All vehicles have a brief description attached to them. We also took the free guided tour which lasts about 45 minutes and were shown around some very interesting early vehicles,... More

... Which is the only place I've seen this many different cars in one place before! This is a great way to spend a few hours if you have an interest in cars, or the history of cars. We spent just over four hours looking around their "time road" (a short history of motoring), British manufacturing exhibit, movie cars, and... More

Lots of vehicles to see here, old,new,royal and famous ones. Plenty of exhibits to make it more interesting for the children. We spent a couple of hours here wandering about and I'm pretty sure we'd seen it all. There were a couple of guided tours scheduled for the day, but we opted to go around by ourselves. There were maps... More

Fantastic Venue Purpose Built Building. That the main good point, it is fat too small for all the exhibits that they have. The main criticism is that around the inside of the building are two rows of cars bonnet to rear bumper (young uns will have no idea what bonnets & bumpers are, so I mean nose to tail). And... More
