“Great fun, awesome collection, cheap!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Can't believe that this attraction is free. There is so much to see and explore that it's well worth an entrance fee. Could use a bit of updating but it's a lot of fun anyway. Great for kids or adults who like cars.

“Interesting for enthusiasts”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Set in an area that is not altogether safe, yet commonly visited. Has a fascinating array of machines. Little dilapidated.

“Old & dusty”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

The dust is as old as the trams, not well kept. They are free to public yet charge group fee when they feel like it. The owner is neither friendly nor helpful.

“Average museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

This would be a great treat but unfortunately it is not well maintained and has not been updated in ages. Although if you want to see really old buses and cars, they don't have many then this is the place to go. You can't spend more than one and a half hours here

“Back into memory lane”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

We visited this museum not knowing what to expect! This certainly brings back memories of the good and old faith-fulls of the past. Model T's, Oldsmobile, Dodge, Pontiac, Volvo, they are all here! Then the transport of yesteryear, buses, trams etc. what a find, and some in pretty good condition. Stage coaches, funeral coaches bizarre old motor cycles! It was sad to see these old ladies of the road standing here, waiting to be dusted and polished for the once a year grand parade! Thanks Flight of the Eagle tours for sharing this old memories with us!
