Do you offer driving experiences?

Unfortunately because many of the vehicles in the motor museum are of historical significance or privately owned we are unable to offer any 'extras' such as birthday or anniversary rides.

The museum is one of the best automotive museums in the country; great range and display of vehicles and an interesting little ride through the history of the car.
