Always wanted to visit. Now closed I understand due to illness of owner. A shame as I was told years ago it was worth a visit. I hope owner recovers or it changes hands & re-opens.

We went twice to the Museum on days when it was advertised as being open. Both days it was shut! From reading other reviews it doesn't sound as though we missed much, but we would have liked the opportunity to make our own minds up.

Some nice cars but how they can call it a museum is a joke
Aug 2014 • Family
Visited in August 2014 whilst on holiday in Newgale, my son loves cars so thought it would be good for him to see what cars used to be like, I didn't expect to many cars due to the size of the building but should have read the warning signs when we entered the museum, you go into what appears to be a run down restaurant with various cabinets full of toy cars, the only staff member was a lady on the phone and who was not very friendly, she ended her call and took our money, she didn't bother to give us any information or directions and went back to the phone to arrange her social life.

We found the door to what I can only describe as a workshop come storage area for various cars and a huge collection of old prams and other junk. Some great cars but they are so crammed in you can't appreciate a lot of them, poor lighting in places meant some vehicles completely hidden, which is a real shame as the stock is actually quite good it's the presentation and lack of any desire to make the place feel like a museum and not stumbling around someone's private collection of cars and trying pass it off as a museum.

Spent around 20 minutes in the place, my wife read they had a car grave yard outside where various cars were waiting to be assessed for restoration in the leaflet, when we went back to the restaurant area I wanted to ask if this area was accessible but unfortunately the unfriendly lady was still on the phone and despite my obvious desire to ask a question she continued to talk on the phone after a while I decided to just move on. We thought it was a joke to call this place a museum.

Plenty to see but poorly displayed.

We knew that it was only a small museum, but despite that it holds plenty of interest . Unfortunately all the vehicles are crammed in together so you can't get to take a good look at them, and it has a neglected feel. Shame really as it has potential to be much better. Worth a visit if you are a real enthusiast.

Memories :)
We loved this place ! It was like an Alladin's cave . Our son who loves all types of vehicles was in his element . I'm still chuckling to myself about the Fiat X19 , I used to drive one in my early 20's . It is like stepping back in time and there's nothing wrong with that !

Museum????? What the hell!!!!
Aug 2014 • Family
OMG where do I start???? My wife has always criticised my garage for being full of ancient motorcycles and crap in boxes but it seems some enterprising person has actually decided to charge you for looking at crap!!! Visited today and 9 hours later I'm still laughing to myself and family at how they can charge you to go in somebody's garage and look at their crap. It is so bad its awesome!!!!

I quite fancied the female manikin in 50's get up though.

Needs a lot of work , displays of some interesting vehicles need improvement - looks as though a garage workshop closed 50 years ago and someone has just found the key !.

Interesting but a little rustic!
Visited on Sunday afternoon earlier in the month and we liked what we saw when we visited. Its a typical enthusiasts musuem and is a little rough around the edges but this added to the rustic feel for us. The cars are in a central room and there are some good models in there. My father and my husband enjoyed it immensely however it's not really intended for kids or anyone looking for a more commercialised musuem.

We also visited the little shop at the top of the musuem car park which was a fab little giftshop.

Didn't even get through the door! Lucky escape?!

We had heard about the museum at a local motoring event and decided to pop in when we were next in the area. We drove about an hour out of our way, hoping to show or little one some of the old cars. We pulled in to a completely empty car park, which we found strange as it was at a time when kids were off school and we had expected it to be quite busy.

There was a dark haired lady inside and we noticed that she was watching us. We got out of the car and helped our two year old out. As we walked over to the building, the lady got up, picked up her keys, walked out and locked the door behind her. She then disappeared into another building!

We were rather baffled, considering the museum was obviously open. As we stood in the car park, wondering whether we should just leave, a man approached us and asked if he could help. We explained what had happened and he gave a little nervous laugh before awkwardly explaining that the owners did not like children visiting and had often turned people away if they were accompanied by children. We were shocked! He went on to say that although there were interesting cars inside, they were not very well presented and visitors often seemed to be unhappy with their experience.

We didn't need to hear any more. We got back into our car and started making other plans. However, we were very amused to look back as we drove off and catch the dark haired lady creeping back into the museum!

Quirky!
Apr 2014 • Couples
This is a bit of a bizarre place - the main "reception" is a restaurant/bar area that has seen better days which has various displays of toy/model cars, magazines and paraphernalia.
After buying a ticket you head towards some more display cabinets choc full of model cars which aren't lit and have various items in front so hard to get to. You can miss the door to the museum proper and end up at the door to the ladies!!
Walk through the door into the main part and your confronted with some great cars in various states, some prams on shelves above and loads of parts. There's also a small workshop to one side. It's almost like a garage that's closed down and re-opened as a museum.
It's not the National Motor Museum but at £3.50 it's reasonable and has some cars you won't see elsewhere. And if the money helps keeps our motoring history alive then it can't be bad.
