“For all those interested in Cars.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We were in Monaco to watch the Formula1 Grand Prix, and Cars interest my husband and son.
More than the latest models, it is the older vintage models that will catch your sight.
We saw a few old cars with Oil-Lanterns as Headlights.
We saw a luxury car with custom-made 'Cane Chairs'!!!!!
We saw vintage two-seater jeeps with that 'Handle-bar' in the front.
We saw a Regal-Royal Lincoln Continental.
We saw an automobile with a 'Palaquin' fitted to it.
We saw a few 'open-cars' that are fitted with Manually operated roll-back roofs!!!!!
And Fords and those long Cadillacs and those Jaguars and of course the very modern Ferrari...... Its all there.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

I really didn't want to go here, but was persuaded by my husband. What a surprise! There are so very many beautiful cars here that take you back as if you are in a film set. It's great for everyone to enjoy - not just petrol heads. Really worth spending time here.

“Incredibly well maintained collection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

This would be close to one of the best car collections in the world. Maybe it is overpowered by some others by sheer numbers (Mulhouse), But the quality and condition of the cars is brilliant. We loved the Delahaye and the HS was hard to pass.

“amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We did not know what to expect as we we had free admission tickets supplied by Cresta Travel but when we got inside it was amazing. The building was very clean and looked new and was very large and spacious and all the cars were in pristine condition. All the cars and exhibits were well spaced out and easy to get close too. Close bye is a stamp museum which was worth visiting.
