The Gippsland Vehicle collection is absolutely fantastic for all ages. Very much worth the time to stop and reflect on times gone by with lots of information provided and ever changing display of vehicles and memorabilia.

A wonderful place and an great display of motor vehicles. The displays change every couple of months so you just want to keep going back. The volunteer staff as so knowledgeable and friendly. A must for any car enthusiasts.

Alot more than we expected, pristine restored vehicles from all over the world displayed in a huge acre sized shed . Vehicles included horse driven carts from the local dairy run from bygone days, motor bikes aswell as motor memorabilia like Shell petrol bowsers and a reconstructed mechanics shed. The gentleman volunteer was well informed and there was complimentary tea,... More

This museum is totally created and maintained by a dedicated group of volunteer enthusiasts. If you are in the area its well worth a visit - but be warned - that 10 minute stop can quickly become over an hour - plus there is free (instant) coffee.

Thanks for your great review. We are pleased that you stayed a little longer than expected. There is certainly a lot to see, and we change the themed display every 4 months. Our next display theme is American Sports cars and coupes. Greatly appreciate your time taken to make others aware of our jewel in Maffra. Cheers. More

We stopped here for an hour or so on the way to Tinamba Hotel for Sunday lunch. The display is much larger than I expected and has lots of rare and interesting cars and plenty of other motor memorabilia. I have visited many motor museum and displays in Australia & overseas and this is as enjoyable as any I have... More

Large open warehouse with heaps of cars and motoring memorabilia. Our favorite is a recreated service station from yesteryear. Good theme weekends with lots of visiting car clubs

Thanks CarolN. We are really stoked with your review. The Motor Museum changes the display every 4 months and launched the new display with an Open DIsplay Day on the lawn around the museum. These are terrific family days, and enjoyed by all. Hope to see you trhere for a different display theme soon Thanks again. More

Lots of interesting displays of vehicles. They change them every few months which is awesome. They occasionally have car shows which are great to go and see. Friendly staff there too :)

Maffra is a pretty country town based in the past on the dairy industry - probably still is but there is much more to the town now, like the motor museum, run by a team of enthusiastic volunteers. There is a regular change over of displays (3x pa) with a particular theme each time. The vehicles are well displayed as... More
