The Haynes International Motor Museum is the UK’s largest exhibition of great cars from around the world. A living and working museum, with over 400 amazing cars and bikes from nostalgic classics of the 50’s and 60’s, glorious Bentleys and Rolls Royce’s to exciting super cars of today, like the Jaguar XJ220. You can discover the world famous Red Room and a further 9 huge display halls.
For those interested in a nostalgic trip down memory lane, the museum offers a host of familiar names such as Austin, MG, and Morris. Whilst for those seeking something more exotic there is a vast array of performance cars, from modern classics such as the Dodge Viper, Jaguar XJ220 and the Ferrari 360, to the more historic Jaguar E Type and AC Cobra. Also on show is a large collection of American cars, including the jewels in the crown of Haynes – the V16 Cadillac, and the million-dollar Duesenberg.
As well as being the motoring mecca for the die hard enthusiast, the Haynes International Motor Museum also takes family fun very seriously indeed and have plenty of activities to entertain toddlers through to teenagers.
Under 4s will love the The Vroom Room – a dedicated indoor soft play area recently constructed with a motoring theme, the interactive garage and mini road system and the Themed Play Towers and Construction Zone with Super Diggers. We also have baby car strollers so let the little ones drive themselves around the Museum giving you time to enjoy the exhibits. There's also an Adventure Playground for your little ones to let of some steam.
The 4-12 age group is the perfect time to really start to explore, discover and experience the Museum. Your child can enjoy all of the activities, as well as take part in engaging learning trails and quizzes.
Teenagers need entertaining but equally they need and want some independence too! The top trumps trail allows them to head off and explore, discover and experience the Museum at their own pace in a safe environment. We also run regular guided tours and events that offer them the engagement and excitement that every teenager craves.
