The only Motor Museum in Wiltshire

The Motor Museum

We are a small, friendly museum situated in the heart of Wiltshire.

The majority of our 100+ exhibits are cars from the 1920’s onwards.

We also have a collection of motorcycles, mopeds and bicycles. You can also see interesting motoring memorabilia, our Jack Spittle Model Lorry Collection and a reconstructed 1930’s style garage complete with vehicles. 

We currently have a very special Williams FW10 Formula 1 car on display.

The Museum has plenty of parking for visitors and a range of activities for our younger visitors. A selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks are available to purchase in our reception together with a seating area. There is wheelchair access to the museum and toilets.
