We were coming to the area for the licensing of our former priest at All Cannings. We chose a bed and breakfast near to Calne and timed our visit especially to visit the motor museum. We arrived knowing we would having at least an hour...More

An interesting and eclectic collection of motoring history with some absolute gems in among the collection - the Brough and the Squariels as an example. It is clear that a lot of work has gone into this collection - a 2-3 hour visit to do...More

Our visit to the museum was spur of the moment, but we were so glad that we called in. The collection of cars is varied and we were surprised how many had been donated by locals. The place has a relaxed, informal feel to it...More

Little gem of a place and not too expensive only £7 adults and £1 for children. You know it's good when the car park has vintage car visitors. Meander round the collection and you can get get up close. A real mix from model cars...More

Last went to Atwell-Wilson before their refurbishment. Now it is more spacious, better lit and just more pleasant, deserving of the exhibits. Still a relatively modest collection, it has several "last off the factory line" cars, plus a fascinating Mini prototype. The staff are true...More

My wife and I thought this small car museum was a Jen, the cars are all immaculate in that they are highly polished, lots of other interesting items to view, some big old American gas guzzlers and some old motor bikes. In all we enjoyed...More

Not on the scale of Haynes or Montague but well worth a visit with some well known old favourites but also some most unusual vehicles such as a very early Nissan (Datsun) copy of the MGB. There is also a great collection of fairly large...More
