I visited here with my sister and my 14 yr old son. He loves older car and devotes a great deal of time to photographing older/antique cars wherever he finds them. He loved this museum!

This is a MUST SEE for the car enthusiast. Not since the old Harrah's collection was broken up were so many great cars assembled. in addition to the cars, the museum itself is spectacular.

Great place for viewing outstanding cars, good history of the car provided, and great to have a company party etc there at the same time. Good food as well at the party.

I was lucky enough to visit this museum with my 1st graders class as a chaperone. The tour was fast enough paced to keep the 6 year olds attention, and the cars were COOL! It's definitely worth a visit, & don't forget to bring your Dad.

As a frequent visitor to UK classic car events I was intrigued, however I was totally unprepared for the sheer scale and... More

I have been here twice and found it interesting both times. Some of the cars were the same but there were new displays also. It is a nice museum to visit if you like older interesting cars.
