Something Classic for the Whole Family! A classic car museum with something to cater for every member of the family. Come and have a look at the cars of yesteryear which are sure to bring back memories. We have over 60 cars on display and an extensive collection of petrol memorabilia - signs, tins, petrol pumps, pedal cars and vintage pin ball machines. Plenty of free parking onsite. We have a 1950's diner in the building too! The Jukebox Diner, serving American classics, modern fare, child friendly options and of course great coffee!

Everything here (& there is a lot!) is in immaculate condition. Some absolute pearlers to see! Photos / video all good, you won’t be disappointed. There’s a plus, the restaurant is decked out with menu also in retro fashion! Just go !!

Stumbled upon this by sheer accident, and I am pleased we did. The museum was spotless and so were all the exhibits. My Father loved it and even for me (43 year old female) it bought back a lot of memories
