Reasonably priced entry, around 100+ cars, motor bikes plus a huge amount of motoring memorabilia, model cars and other products from the early part of the 20th century. Well worth a visit. Helpful and friendly staff.

This museum features classic cars and other automobile related items, such as memorabilia from Shell service stations. You enter the museum through a 1950s themed diner. The exhibits bring back memories.
