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.
Superb even if you are not an avid motoring fanatic - the history and easily read facts and details about the vehicles is spot on - you can spend a little or longer time at the vehicles and still come away having learned something new.
