“A wonderful trip down memory lane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

After a lifetime of racing and collecting cool cars, this museum brings back many memories. I grew up with most of these cars. Being able to spend time with all these cars again brings back the smells and sounds of many years of great times. If your into old cars, cool cars or drag racing, this is a must see. Make sure you plan at least a half a day, there is lots to see.

“Fantasic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Had a fantastic day here. Im a big drag racing fan & this place is like a dream come true. Great value, staff very friendly, free parking & free use of a wheelchair (for my partner). The amount of stuff on show is amazing. Very recommended.

“Fun Place to See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

What an interesting museum! Now you have to really like drag racing to spend some time looking at all the racing machines but it will be worth it. The other building has a wonderful collection of old cars that Don has restored or are in original condition. The staff are friendly and everything is pristine. Well worth the time spent.
