Overview

Located in the picturesque village of Bourton on the Water, the Cotswold Motoring Museum is a fascinating journey through the 20th century that the whole family can enjoy. The Museum is bulging with great cars, quaint caravans, precarious looking motorcycles, enamel signs and an intriguing collection of motoring curiosities! Brum, the BBC TV's little super hero car whose adventures start and end at the museum can be found here every day.

Great for enthusiasts and general browsing, a little expensive though, £6 each and not particularly large, but enjoyable

Just walking round slowly without really stopping to look and read all the excellent info would take approx 30 mins... so relax, slow down, enjoy and be educated and take about 90 mins!
