Details

The prestigious Haynes international Motor Museum at Sparkford in Somerset offers fantastic family fun whatever the weather. With more than 400 cars and bikes displayed in stunning style, dating from 1886 to the present day, it is the UK’s largest exhibition of great cars from around the world.

For those interested in a nostalgic trip down memory lane, the museum offers a host of familiar names such as Austin, MG and Morris. Those who are seeking something more exotic will be pleased to find a vast array of performance cars, from modern classics such as the Dodge Viper RT10 and the Jaguar XJ220, to the more historic Jaguar E Type and AC Cobra. Also on show is a large collection of American cars, including jewels in the crown of Haynes – the V16 Cadillac and the multimillion dollar Duesenberg.

For the children there is the Ghostbusters ambulance, auto game experience, themed play area, soft play ‘Vroom room’ and may other activities. Complete your visit in Cafe 750, serving a variety of freshly made meals, snacks and drinks all day.

Whether you are a motoring enthusiast, a family looking for a fun day out, or a group of friends young or old, the Haynes International Motor Museum offers an unrivalled experience. The museum is open 7 days a week and is easily accessible, being situated just off the A303 north of Yeovil.
