“Quirky and interesting”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We were the only visitors at the time we visited,so we had plenty of time to look at the collection . Some very old cars with facts about their history on the side .A little dusty but for a private Icollection the owners had found some fine old cars . The men with me were talking happily , while I found a Talbut Sunbeam my father had when I was a child . A nice way to spend an hour.

“Good private collection”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

I have to agree with other reviews in all respects, but as a private collection to visit if you happen to live locally is OK. Don't bother travelling too far out of your way. But these guys don't seem to be making much effort. The exhibit cards are ancient, many mis spelled and many silly mistakes. Obviously typed on an old typewriter. The place is dusty if not grubby, and several nice exhibits appear unloved and neglected. They are deserving of a better home, and clearly a substantial amount of money is needed to achieve their rightful place in motoring heritage.

“Quirky motor museum”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Myreton is a quirky collection of fascinating old vehicles flung higglety pigglety into a big, leaky, shed ! However, it's well worth the visit and ideal for passing an hour or so on a wet day. Just don't expect squeaky-clean up to the minute displays.

“Very interesting, a shame about its condition and price.”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

This is a private collection and yes the location is a little way out and the admission a bit pricey, but the collection is great!
Of course you are not allowed to touch it, when ever can you!?
It's not child friendly or accessible.
It's an old hanger, plus a shed and they are doing it up, but for a private collection I think it's good.
Toilets are available but not the best condition.
Dress warm as no heating.

“Awful for young children”
Reviewed July 9, 2011

Museum is a stretch of the imagination - old shed in the middle of nowhere with lots of old cars you aren't allowed to touch is a more accurate representation.

Not child friendly in any way, will not be visiting again.
