A fascinating museum in the flat countryside. Reasonable fee. Well displayed items including artefacts from the fifties and sixties. The very reasonably priced home cooked food in the cafe was a distinct bonus. Glad we had a Satnav to get us there!

Essentially a big shed full of bubble cars and mini cars, Henkel, Messerschmitt, Bond etc and some motorbikes. Lots of variety to keep a boy and his dad happy for an hour. Entry price reasonable. Didn't stay for coffee. But essentially a warehouse so no heating therefore cold in April - wrap up warm

We are not allowed heating for the Museum buildings, not warehouses but custom adapted to include cars, bikes,scooters, mopeds, room settings, and memorabilia from the 50.60 era in shop fronts. The reason there is no heating is because following building regulations we would have to insulate the vast ceiling otherwise we would be just heating Lincolnshire. The tearoom is lovely... More

After camping for 3 nights on the camping & caravan site attached to the museum we paid a visit to the museum. Plenty of vehicles to see and shop sets and house sets from a bygone era. Good little tea room with really low prices. Only issue we have with campsite is sharing facilities with museum and facilities could do... More

Most visitors, think our combination of five loos, one disabled, a hot water indoor washup and two nice showers really good, just redecorated throughout for this years opening. Very sorry your did not. Would be really glad to know what you felt needed 'upgrading' More

Just loved this place! Brought back loads of brilliant childhood memories. The cars are marvelous and the display cases of everyday items from the 50s and 60s help set the mood. The staff were friendly and the cafe is good. A bit of hearing in the museum would help though. Well worth a visit!

Lovely little niche subject museum. Neat & tidy presentation of bubblecars and other tiny vehicles plus some motorcycles, scooters, mopeds and retro item displays. Small gift area with local produce plus some museum related stuff but not too OTT. Thankfully no pencil sharpeners or erasers in sight! Cafe integral with the museum reception was inexpensive, clean and included good quality... More

What a gem of a little museum. An eclectic mix of three wheeled vehicles and their history, some are in settings. It is housed on two floors. The ground floor is suitable for disabled and wheelchair bound people. There is also a small gift shop and cafe area that displayed a nice range of cakes.

We popped in here probably expecting to spend a quick half hour tour, and were still there 3 hours later. It's am amazing little museum, bigger than you expect it to be, and even if you're not a car fan you will find things here to amuse and entertain you. It really has the feeling of being run by a...
