I did not expect to enjoy this motor museum so much. It's meticulous, extraordinary and a true gift that visitors can enjoy. So many different cars! And the modern cars were beautiful. Red, shiny. I stared with envy!

We took my 86 year old father to the motor museum. We were concerned that he would be able to walk the distance as the museum is spread out over four large stables. He enjoyed himself so much that he wouldn't have minded walking further. The cars are in mint condition and the variety is astonishing. They circulate them every... More

Initially I thought this would just be a couple of old cars ..boy was I wrong - this a unique selection of at least 80 cars - from horse drawn carriage to modern Ferraris. The 80 cars are rotated regularly from a collection of 140 – so you can go multiple times and see different ones. It’s really something to... More

What an informative, interesting museum. An abundant selection from different eras. Loved the old Ford's. The cars are kept in immaculate condition. A must for car enthusiasts.

A massive collection of beautiful cars form all eras. There's the first Ford and the high-end F1 race car. We walked around and chose our car, like kids! It was a real treat!

Great collection of cars, both historical and new. Very informative and well presented exhibits... A definite for all car enthusiasts and a "nice to look at" for those who are not! A bit off the beaten path, but with all the vineyards around, a good day out!
