We spent probably 1.5 hours here, more for my husband and 13 year old than myself, but I have to say I still enjoyed it. A huge variety of cars and motorbikes, across the years. It was the perfect thing to do in Salamanca on...More

The museum is worth a visit it you have any interest in cars or motorcycles of which there must be over 100 on display. Exhibits are over three floors and the layout is easy to navigate. Some of the interesting cars include General Franco’s limo,...More

I was surprised by how much is packed into this relatively modest museum. There is a fantastic mix of European and world cars. There is comprehensive collection of Spanish Seat cars, especially the charming little 600. A great way to get out of the sun...More

I had high expectations after having visited the museum of transport in Bratislava and I was not disappointed. Loved the cars exhibited, were surprised about the informations written and pleased with the car prototypes that the future might use. The only downside is that you...More

The compact city of Salamanca is brimming with attractions and, while you certainly shouldn’t miss the various cathedrals, convents and the beautiful plaza mayor, the car museum offers a different perspective of ‘historical exhibits’. We’re not car buffs but we enjoyed the exhibits that ranged...More

I had read reviews that were good, but I suppose I still was not expecting the high quality of the car collection. Especially wondrous were the beautiful early cars from the 1900s through the 30s. The Hispano-Suizas were gorgeous. Man I'd love just one of...More

Nostalgic walk through the history of cars, well preserved and arranged with a tidy range you'll recognise and some surprises too. Thoroughly enjoyable hour or so, especially looking at the cars from the 1920's and '30's from which you can imagine machine-gunned monsters would hang...More

Very good collection of cars, motor cycles and auto memorabilia, extremely well displayed. At 2 euros each admission for pensioners a museum not to be missed by anyone with an interest in motoring and motors.

It may not be large, and may not have many high value pieces, although to be fair, you would have to stump up many millions to buy a collection like this, but every exibit in the building has a purpose, from the penny farthing commisisoned...More
