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!

Sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy your visit. Hopefully your father and husband enjoyed the display! Did you come on the 29?

A great restaurant that caters for kids of all ages. Even the 2 year old got excited by all the cars. A great event for the family regardless of age

Well worth a visit if you’re even remotely interested in classic cars. Mainly pre 1960s. Great 1950s style diner attached to it.

We were looking to do something to kill an hour or two whilst in Hamilton and are so glad we went here. The collection is great, and the themed café from the 1950s is awesome. Recommended.
