A trip around the numerous buildings of the museum will show you a vast array of vehicles of all types. The display is somewhat cramped but put this down to the hundreds of exhibits. Any one interested in old vehicles will find their visit well worth while but don't expect ''a Beaulieu style museum''. An interesting experience.

We called in here with not much time to spare and had a fantastic time. The main reason was to see an old airport crash tender that used to be at Carlisle Airport. They have a fantastic collection and try to keep them well maintained. The museum is a small family run place and both people in on the day... More

I last visited the Stondon Transport Museum over 10 years ago an enjoyed it very much. I visited once more today with Members of Trinity Methodist Church Men's Group and I'm pleased to say that lots of exhibits have been added plus safer walkways and we even got a free cuppa at the end. The staff were very friendly and... More

I've lived about 30 miles away from here for over 20 years and regrettably had not heard of the place until last week. Really quirky little museum in a former garden centre. Loads and loads of classic cars including real gems like an old Victor 101 I remember my Dad having in the 70's. Staff were friendly and very enthusiastic,... More

This was very good as I am a petrol head. The range of cars, bikes buses, fire trucks and even missile launchers are great! There is even a devoted Rolls-Royce section, but children are not allowed as there is no barriers to stop them. I really loved the old London bus as you can get on and see. Sadly, the... More

We have just been to the museum with visiting family during a wet half term week. We could not believe the range of different vehicles which are displayed, from cycles through to a missile launcher. As this is a private collection and museum, they have no government or lottery money to rely on and this is a little obvious with... More

The first and most striking thing I noticed on walking into this museum is the friendliness and casual attitude. If you're looking for posh pomp and a snooty restaurant ...you're not going to find it here! My Husband & Son are true Motor-heads, they LOVED every minute at this museum. You can touch the cars and peer inside, stand next-to... More

An amazing collection of old cars housed higgledy piggldey in a series of leaky sheds. Whether you are aged 19 or 90 you will find that first car you ever owned here.
