TheHistory on Wheels Museum was first opened to the public in 1980, and as the name implies, within this Museum can be found a truly unique collection of Motors, both Military and Civilian, Militaria, from 1900 to the 1950s, from all conflicting Nations, and Memories, illustrating artefacts of all types from both the civilian and wartime home fronts.

You can watch the special custom made half hour film in their own little cinema, plus there's a family dining area available with table seating and 25ft breakfast bar which features panoramic window views of Windsor Castle.

In the Summer months the dining area gives access to a large Patio, where visitors can relax under sunshades and enjoy the fine uninterrupted views of Windsor Castle, while enjoying their tea and snacks.

At the opposite end of the NAAFI dining area can be found the Museum Collectors Shop. This is believed to be a unique Museum attraction in the UK, as opposed to selling modern versions or new 'Museum Souvenirs', it offers for sale original collectables, of historic interest, from the period 1900 to 1945.
