    Have taken my children many times over the years and now take my grandson. He loves it and is so excited to go as much as possible. The staff are amazing always friendly informative and helpful. There's so much to take in and discover with the history of our motor vehicles. Our visit was made extra special by Jim he takes the time to explain all sorts of motoring history and I learn new thing myself a big thank you to Jim and all the staff that make it possible to see so much of our motoring history all in one site. I /we will look forward to our next visit and recommend a visit to anyone. Always things for the children to do actively and we can enjoy the experience too.. Everyone needs to visit The British Motor Museum in Gaydon and help to keep this important motoring history open and in our country we can't loose this very important part of our motoring history..

    This is the second time we have been in the last couple of months with our grandson. We had the most amazing time viewing so many exciting cars from The Queen and other icons like James Bond and so many more. Both times we were so lucky to spend time with Jim who made Eli's visit such fun. You need to allow plenty of time to take in some of the magnificent cars. Truly an amazing place. We will be back.
