I traveled up from the Isle of Wight to see this little gem and was not disappointed. Well laid out, great exhibits and thoughtfully presented. Do not miss this one. Exactly how a transport museum should be, Beaulieu take note...... Great tea and cake too!

Well worth a visit. The displays are exceptionally good and the staff take a genuine interest in talking to people about the exhibits. The cafe is clean and reasonably priced especially if you have children. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
