My husband loves cars so we visited this museum. I was pleasantly surprised at how many exhibits they had. A nice museum with some good exhibits which is well worth a visit.

A great little museum. The visit was a lot more than expected. This museum is a little gem. Some fantastic cars and motorcycles spread on two floors. A nice relaxing couple of hours

Lovely exhibits and a great trip down memory lane. Owner gives an optional talk at the beginning and then you're free to wander. Good descriptions about exhibits and most vehicle windows are open so you can have a proper look at the inside. Well worth...More

No, but there are three cafe's and toilets within sight. Moretonhampstead is very compact. There are also three food pubs also within the town and a few hundred paces.
