My autophile husband observed that the museum was missing a lot, but when you consider that this was somone's private collection, the cars are in mint condition (external), and there is 100 years of history in cars it really is amazing. Along with the Art Deco museum, this one gives Salamanca extra points for offering something unique and a departure from traditional classic art and architecture (it has that too).

There are more famous and stunning cars elsewhere but none better laid out and presented than this gem. I dragged my wife along to the exhibition and we spent two very enjoyable hours admiring the variety of motorised vehicles, including Franco's HS and the Royal family Merc.
The museum is superbly laid out, lots of information available and over 100 pristine cars from 1895 to 2012.
An added bonus is the €4 ticket that gets you into Casa Lis too!

This is on the opposite side of the road to the beautiful Casa Lis (Art Nouveau and Art Deco Museum) and you can buy a two-for-one ticket (4.00€) from the Tourist Information Office in Plaza Mayor.

Wonderful collection of vehicles laid out as a timeline of development. There are examples of many ‘classics’ (no spoilers, go and see for yourself!) and the condition of the vehicles is remarkable.

I’m not a ‘car nut’, neither is my wife, but we both found it very interesting. Well worth a visit

We came across this museum on our way back to our hotel We wanted to see the Art Deco building and the Roman bridge both of which are nearby.
My husband likes cars and I don't mind following him round but I found this little collection to be really interesting.
There have a wide variety of cars, several Hispano-Suiza which impressed the husband and the displays are well put together and it's easy to get round. The only down side was that all the information was in Spanish but you can easily understand the make, model and year.
If you have a bit of spare time I would highly recommend fitting this in to a tour of Salamanca

Anyone with an interest in cars and motoring should visit this museum. It has a fabulous collection of cars from the 1880s to today - all beautifully restored, showing the history of motoring in Spain, and by extension, the general progress of the motor car over 130 years or so. It is interesting to compare the early models with the Renault F1 car from 2009 (which, incidentally, is placed near one of the most iconic cars ever - the VW Beetle), but there are competition cars from all eras alongside 'everyday' cars and 1920s Grand tourers. The only drawback is that the descriptions of the cars and their histories are in Spanish only, so those who don't speak or read Spanish will have difficulty in reading the stories of the cars - which are often very interesting. In spite of this, it is definitely worth a visit.

An eclectic collection of cars, ancient and modern, in a nice exhibition space - the old ones are both more interesting, and beautiful, of course. The chronology is odd, you'd have thought that they'd start with the old, and progress to the new, and, generally speaking they do, but with some very odd glitches. It's annoying that all descriptions are exclusively in Spanish, it wouldn't be difficult to get some English/French/Italian/German translations too. So, worth a visit, and it's cheap to get in, but it's not a patch on the brilliant auto museum in Turin.

This is an excellent museum and worth spending a couple of hours in it. There are three floors of cars from various countries and eras to view and although there's not much information in English, it was easy enough to understand top speed and horse power.

There some great Jaguars and an AC Cobra (couldn't drag my husband away from that one) and various Hispano-Suizas that looked really excellent. This marque was new to me, but they did look lovely. The vehicles are well-laid out and it's easy to wander around the floors, taking it all in. We had a great time with some of the US cars, deciding which ones would have been gangster cars........all of them seemed good candidates, with some really cool whitewall tyres on display.

There's also a fairly recent F1 car, driven by Fernando Alonso, which looks rather flimsy, but flash. Good to compare to the sleek lines of the other cars.

The museum is open until 8pm, which is handy. However, there is an irritating charge of €1 ro pay if you want to take photos. If you pay, you get a little sticky badge to wear that gives you the right to snap unchallenged. It's a small cost, but an annoying development I've noticed in some museums in Spain. There's also a small shop where you can buy various car related things. So worth spending some time there.

This is a great little auto museum. Most of the autos are restored to "new" condition. Well worth a visit for all auto enthusiasts.
