The Museum has great accessibility and has 3 disabled spaces opposite the entrance. The exhibits are very interesting and I found the Bluebird collection particularly poignant. There is a great cafe on site, serving wonderful food including home-made cakes.

We visited the museum for the first time in over ten years. Great set of exhibits, and laid out (largely) in chronological order. This made evolution of the car more easy to see. As well as the cars themselves there are many other motoring related...More
