Situated within the picturesque village of Beaulieu in the New Forest, the National Motor Museum is a must-see attraction for petrolheads of all ages.
The museum's vast collection features more than 250 vehicles, from vintage cars and motorcylces to F1 favourites and land speed record-breakers.
Even for those less passionate about cars, there is still plenty to see to spark some interest. The collection features classic motors from film and TV, so you might spot James Bond's Jaguar, or Del Boy's Robin Reliant.
Aside from the museum's impressive collection, there are plenty of exciting attractions to educate and entertain the whole family. The popular Driving Change exhibit provides visitors with an in-depth look at how motor cars have evolved.
There's also the chance to discover the inner workings of a car, and to learn all about car safety from an actual crash test dummy!
If you're visiting at the weekend or during school holidays, the museum hosts a live vehicle start-up at 2pm, giving visitors the extra thrill of hearing a motor roar into life.
The National Motor Museum is open every day, apart from Christmas Day. First admission is at 10am, but with so much to explore, it's advised you arrive as early as possible to ensure you get the most out of your visit.
The museum has created a helpful itinerary to help you plan your day. Itinerary Map Download: https://www.beaulieu.co.uk/wp/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Car-Lover-Itinerary-1.pdf
