Fantastic setting and excellent venue for anyone interested in motor vehicles from very early models to concept cars which never made it to the market! Restaurant was pricey but on our second visit we picnicked in the grounds using the benches provided - even watched the fish swimming in the pond! Good value for money with 12 months entrance free...

Great day out with the Retro truck show and free entrance to the museum. Also tried the Land Rover experience which was very good and informative re 4 x 4 driving.

Came here with family. For the price you pay, I don't think it's worth it unless you're fanatical about vehicles. We could have completed the whole museum within a couple of hours. There was lots to see in terms of different types of vehicles, but I detected a certain level of arrogance from some members of staff. The restaurant is... More

Many people don't realise that this excellent motor museum also has meeting and conference facilities. I was speaking at a conference here and took the opportunity during the break to take a look around the museum. It goes without saying that if you're into cars then this is a cracking place to visit. Lots of classic old and shiny vehicles... More

I visited the Museum during the ‘Buses Festival’ event and wonder why I’ve never been before. Partly funded by Land Rover, the museum holds a large collection of British cars – although mainly concentrating on the Midlands motor industry so some well known names are poorly represented, notably Ford and Vauxhall. The vehicles are well presented and have fact sheets... More

Great event. John Bishop, Car Events Organiser from Heritage Motor Centre was very helpful. Nothing too much trouble for him. Motor Centre very interesting. Well worth a visit.

We visited the Buses 2014 event at this venue and admision to the Heritage Motor Museum was included in the ticket prices. The museum has a circular layout mainly on one floor. The exhibits include a large range of vehicles representing the last 100 years. There are normal road cars, and some racing cars as well as small commercial vehicles.... More

I recently visited the motor museum with my dad whilst travelling down to the great Dorset steam fair. We have been wanting to go for quite sometime and we are pleased that we did. All vehicles in the museum are to a pristine condition and some are things you would see nowhere else. Even though we didn't speak to many... More

Just a fabulous British car collection. There's something for everyone. I'm not big into vehicles, bikes and sports cars but thought it was a great place.

I thorough enjoyed my visit to this museum. There are some excellent old cars, many of which brought back memories of both childhood, and early driving experiences. Amazing to stand by an original Mini and realise just how small it was. Hard to believe my wife and I used to go on holiday in one, with a week's worth of... More
