DESCRIPTION

By the mid 1980’s, fuelled by a passion for collecting fine cars and anything related to them, John Haynes OBE had amassed a collection of twenty nine cars and three motorcycles. He wanted this collection to be accessible to the public, so after extensive redevelopment of an old joinery on the current site, The Haynes International Motor Museum first opened its doors on 10th July 1985.

The collection of cars, motorcycles and automobilia continued to grow as did the Museum with regular extensions including the development of a test circuit adjacent to the main building. Investment in the site and the collection has continued to this day and now, after an extensive £6m redevelopment completed in April 2014, the Museum now boasts: over 400 cars and motorbikes in 15 very distinct exhibitions; a stunning entrance foyer and reception area;  a large museum shop selling auto related gifts for both young and old as well as specialist memorabilia;  Café 750 which serves delicious home cooked food;  state of the art conference and hospitality facilities for 10 to 400 guests and Haynes Workshop Services.


The exhibitions, from the “Dawn of Motoring” through to “Supercar Century” take you on a journey from early beginnings to present day supercars taking in vehicles from across the globe along the way. The Museum will give you unrivalled access to explore, discover and experience the history, designs and technologies of motoring from around the world.

The Museum also offers fun for all the family with Haynes Motorland including an electric go-kart track, the Vroom Room (our indoor soft play barn), scooters, Haynes Garage, and activity play frames and vehicles. Within the Museum we also have Paint-a-Mini, a go-kart simulator, an auto-games area, dressing up and photo points as well as brass rubbings and kid’s activity trails. Added to this we have an extensive programme of events for both children and adults throughout the year.

Whether you are a motoring enthusiast, a family looking or a fun day out, or a group of friends young or old, the Haynes International Motor Museum offers an unrivalled experience. For further information please visit www.haynesmotormuseum.com
