A must for anyone who enjoys cars, and motoring history, so much to see and enjoy. Brought back memories. more »
Great place to visit. Lots of different cars to see and learn about Australia's transport era and can easily be there for a whole day. There is also a video games section to keep the kids amused. A small shop on the way out and great bakery in the main street.
Kids loved it. I thought it was pretty good too. Could've had a few more Ford exhibits considering you're the "national" motor museum, not the "Holden" motor museum.. both are closed now, no need for SA bias. The interactive displays are great for children of all ages.
