We always like car museums but this one was run really well. You can get so close to all the exhibits and they sure have plenty to choose from. We have two young kids and they were certainly entertained with one being pulled in a car buggy that they supply. Lots of fun activities for the kids while I could... More

Me and my husband visited here whilst we stayed in a nearby hotel on the way home, large carpark, fair price admission. The cars were in superb condition alot of rare concepts, a lot more quality than other car museums we have visited. Just a shame that some adults and a lot of children touch the cars and open the...

My husband wanted to call in on the way to the Cotswolds. I am not a lover of cars or museums but I thoroughly enjoyed looking at the many old cars. We may even go back on future trips to the Cotswolds. I thought the staff were very friendly and pleasant and thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

Didn't know this place existed but saw a flyer for it in our hotel (Mallory Court, Leamington Spa - excellent) - as it was more or less on our way to Silverstone we decided to call in for a break. What a pleasant surprise - for an old petrolhead like me this place is fantastic. I've been to many motor... More

Drove past Coventry Transport Museum to get to Motor Heritage Centre, more fool me overpriced admission overpriced cafe ( £3.60 for so called sausage sandwich ) and a so called gentleman on the entrance reception too full of his own importance. Its Coventry by a mile for me.

Went to help my five year old with his easter project(transport through history) and we had a really great time! Very good value with your tickets allowing you entry over the next 12 months (except a couple of special days they give you details of). We also paid for the off road experience, which again was not expensive , and... More

Visited over the Easter weekend and found it very quiet. There are some beautiful cars here mainly classics/old but some more modern and a few that had been used in movies. We paid extra for a 20 minute off road experience in a brand new Land Rover Discovery which we all very much enjoyed. Nice cafe which I didn't think... More

I have been to many motoring museums of the world. Until now, Turin held first spot. This museum is fantastic, few ropes and barriers allow people to walk around the car and get close risking damage to the car but increasing guest enjoyment. A well done facility smaller packed full of cars, rare cars I have only seen images. Well... More

We attended this on the back of a recommendation from our tour guide at Land Rover. I was expecting just Land Rover but was pleasantly surprised at the number and type of vehicles there. Everything from the first ever motor vehicle (Benz) to an Aston Martin Vanquish. Even a DeLorean was there! Good entry prices and lots for kids to... More

I took my son and his mate (both 14) to the museum during their easter holiday as we were staying close by in our caravan. I had been to the museum before so I knee what to expect. We spent 3.5 hours looking around the vehicles which are in a good condition. Plenty of famous cars too. The museum part... More
