Attraction Information

The prestigious Haynes International Motor Museum at Sparkford in Somerset offers an excellent day out for everyone. With more than 400 cars and bikes displayed in stunning style, dating from 1886 to the present day, it is the largest international motor museum in Britain.

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 the jewels in the crown of Haynes: the V16 Cadillac, and the million-dollar Duesenberg.

For the children there is the kids' race track, autogame experience, themed play area, Vroom room - soft play area, children's diggers and dumpers and many other activities. Throughout the year the museum also hosts lots of exciting events.

Reviews

Great day out with my 5 year old 5 out of 5 stars

My 5 year old boy really enjoyed this day out, there's lots to see and quite a few interactive areas such as the design your own mini and the display where you can see how an engine works. The cafe is bright and welcoming and there is an excellent play area outside with a car theme. We bought a gift aid ticket which we can reuse for the entire year, so well worth the money. Would definitely recommend.

haynes with daughter with Aspergers 3 out of 5 stars

Hi went with myself and 3 daughters, the 5 year old has Aspergers, I loved the place as I restore (and lecture) classic cars. Plenty for the children to do however because my 5 year old is more of a wildcard - runs off, touches things has the odd melt down (falls to the floor and shouts) I was watched, uncomfortably so, most of the time - and not in a good way . I know it is hard for people to understand that children presenting with aspergers are not just naughty children - its hard to be a parent. You feel like you are being judged when you are on a day out. More understanding please! But fabulous place!
