Considering the size of the museum, it is good and a lot of effort has been put in over the years and it is deceptive just how many vechicles are on show; a lot, just don't expect Beaulieu, not really a day trip more a case of an hour or two.

A small but informative museum, with great working cars that you can hire. Fascinating attention to detail. Run by genuine enthusiasts. Well worth a visit.

This is a lovely museum that is run by people who care , not the biggest but still many cars to look at , also the people who run it are very helpful if a question is asked .

Many of the larger museums are only interested in taking your addmission money ,the people who run this one are interested in their customers , This was something I found very refreshing in this day and age ... Lovely place , lovely people ,and cars that are looked after ... well worth a 2 hour visit

We had a very warm welcome to the museum, it is a fasinating place for anyone who has any interest in cars. All of the information for each car is there and most have great histories to explore. When we asked a question about a car we were treated to a look under the bonnet and a great detailed answer from a very knowledgable man. Really enjoyed our couple of hours here and will definately be going again. Also very reasonable prices for this day and age.

What a wonderful collection of cars!! Quietly stored within the grounds of an unassuming bungalow is a wonderful array of classic, vintage and veteran cars, motorbikes, motoring memorabilia and even push bikes! There must be in excess of 100 exhibits in total, keep going round the corner and more present themselves, then another building looms and, hey presto, even more memories. A wonderful time spent exploring, remembering and just admiring.
