You can see a full list of vehicles on the National Motor Museum Trust website. At certain times the vehicles on display may change. If there is a particular vehicle you wish to view please contact us on 01590 614541 before your visit to check it is on display.
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.
I visited the museum this weekend for the first time and was 'blown away' by the content and especially the exhibits.
