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

York is a nice but sleepy town, for a tourist there isn't to much to see or do The motor museum was interesting, some great classics were on display. I think the museum has seen better days though, is a little untidy and the building is not in the best shape. I also found it odd that they had 80s... More

If you passing through Perth or even a local, you should take the time to visit this fine collection. You might figure you have seen plenty of old cars and why go 100km out of Perth just to see these. Well the drive out to Yok in itself is worthwhile and when you get there you can pull up at... More

We have enjoyed visiting the Motor Museum, it was absolutely freezing inside but the cars were worth it, all were old and some quite rare.
