Explore the history of motoring...

From the earliest motor carriages to classic family saloons, the world-famous National Motor Museum has one of the finest collections of cars, motorcycles and motoring memorabilia in the world.

From legendary F1 cars and land speed record breakers for the speed freaks, to incredible examples of pioneering motoring for the history-buffs. If you time it right you'll even hear vehicles starting up!

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 very best of old cars and related artefacts are all here, real models for you to enjoy. It is a unique exhibit, the best in UK and probably one of the best of its kind in the world.
