Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was so much bigger than we anticipated and has oodles of vehicles, vintage collections and some wearable art type things. We thoroughly enjoyed our two hours and could have been there longer had my hubby not got a sore leg. Excellent cafe too with vintage rooms - we did the 70s room which took us back.

Very rarely can I give 5 out of 5 for every element of anywhere I visit. This attraction exceeds this score on every count. The museum itself warrants the highest accolades but also the restaurant and the facilities are also the best quality.

Absolutely amazing transport world was worth every penny, has something for everyone and sounds weird but the toilets, what a surprise, so well presented

Allow for at least 3 hrs but more like a day

Awesome little place to look around and see all the different cars and other transport orientated attractions. They even have an old school drive in movie theatre.

My adult son (who is a local) took me here for a visit. It wasn't something I would have usually gone to if I hadn't been taken but I'm delighted I went.
The exhibits and sheer volume of vehicles and artifacts on display is astounding.
The quality is unparalleled and the diaramas are believable and appropriate in every case.
The only criticism would be you need to be warmly dressed as there is no heating in the exhibition areas and in winter weather it is definitely cool inside.
The staff are helpful and friendly and the exhibition areas and all public areas are spotlessly clean and tidy.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND A VISIT

Super expensive for a museum!
Having said that, the displays and vehicles themselves were impeccably presented. The caravans were my favourite. My son and husband loved it.
This was the whole reason we included Invercargill in our holiday and despite the price and terrible service, it was worth the visit.
The woman at reception was not friendly at all. Maybe she was having a bad day.

And always love an auto museum. Big, it’s really big. Claim to be largest in world.
Eclectic car collection with lots of trucks, vw kombi, more trucks. Oddly, there are very few racing cars.

Disappointing, unless you like trucks. Was expecting cars but were very few to see. Wouldn’t go back and wouldn’t recommend it unles you want to see American trucks
