This museum is one for motoring buffs only. There are several very old "horseless carriages", unusual models like a three wheeled Morgan, classic cars like the Cadillac and Mustang, some early English sports cars, and a few different types of racers and early motorcycles. There is also an extensive collection of models, signage, badges, and accessories. The collection is let... More

A very good collection of motor cars, bikes and accessories which all will enjoy. It could do with a bit of a spruce up but is nevertheless well worth a visit.

We were pleasantly surprised to see the range of cars, etc at the motor museum. There were also other collections on show. Unfortunately, some were left a little dilapidated.

The York Motor Museum is very much a "One Man Band" but well worth the visit and a chat with Peter Briggs. Without today's technology you only have to admire the skill of the earlier engineers and craftsmen. how some of those vehicles achieved what the did is mind boggling. A must visit for car buffs and historians.

This was interesting but I didn't think it was worth $9.00. I probably would have been happy paying $5.00 each. However they had some interesting cars and bikes.

Pete Briggs has a great collection of cars and bikes here. I have been here 4 times now and the exhibition is worth the visit. Get chatting to him and he will talk all day, if you want!! He's seen it and done it

We went there today 21-2-14 when it was "open" BUT it wasn't open! It's supposed to be open till 3pm in the summertime. We got there at 1.55 and waited for 30 minutes. The sign said closed and there was a small slip of paper saying "gone for parts". We gave up waiting and quickly looked at other places. We... More

There are some interesting quirky places to visit in York one of which is the Motor Museum. In keeping with the rest of the town atmosphere the collection is housed in an old building in the main street. There are exhibits from early Australian automobiles as well as a Model T; a range of children's pedal cars and quite a... More
