Great to see this massive display. Would have been better to see some in action as well, rather than sitting static (doh... like Museum pieces!) .

This place is simply spectacular. The collection of vehicles is stellar and while it is understated and almost ba little bit out of the way, you will leave impressed. It is a simple museam (no new interactive stuff) but I suspect even the non-car enthusiast (of which I am one) will always enjoy this slice of history. Make a point to get there if you can.

A collection that covers all sorts of cars. A few surprises, Mercedes Gullwing, stunning.
Possibly could be bigger as it appeared to be a bit crowded, made taking pictures a little difficult.

Our seven year old grandson loved his visit here. Or five year old granddaughter really enjoyed the more peculiar and novelty vehicles. There was a lot of wow and look at that its amazing being exclaimed by our entire group. Well worth a visit although perhaps a bit more so for the child who really loves cars.

This is the best car museum anywhere where you will find every sort of car from the beginning of motorised transport to today.
