Located in the picturesque village of Bourton on the Water, the Cotswold Motoring Museum is a fascinating journey through the 20th century that the whole family can enjoy. The Museum is bulging with great cars, quaint caravans, precarious looking motorcycles, enamel signs and an intriguing collection of motoring curiosities! Brum, the BBC TV's little super hero car whose adventures start and end at the museum can be found here every day.

This museum is a good effort from the owners, the information is accurate, but it needs much more room.

This museum is a wonderful reminder of the past, unfortunately all the small areas limit the display, which we felt was too crowded and not categorised. I might be best to lessen the quantity of displays and show them off more to their attributes/interests. However...More

Bourton-on-the-Water has a lot to offer to its visitors but it's worthwhile to find time to check out the motoring museum situated in a very picturesque corner with the stream running down adjacent to it. You're expected to buy a ticket which is not expensive...More
