Being car nuts, my son and I enjoyed the visit very much. Great selection of vintage cars and bikes, and very informative. Being from Malaysia, I found the museum very unique.

A lovely museum, staffed by enthusiasts, with a wide range of cars, trucks, motorbikes and bicycles. Probably overlooked by most users of Whiteman Park, this unassuming tin shed contains some 70 or so vehicles from the 19th century (1898!) onwards. Australian, American, British, French, Japanese, and probably more nations cars can be found, including some real rarities and some unique... More

I finally visited the Motor Museum at Whiteman Park for the first time and was very impressed by the large collection of memorabilia on display. The staff were very helpful and enthusiastic about the museum which was great to see. I think anyone with a passion for cars or motors will really appreciate it while anyone else visiting the park...

My Friend was at the entrance wondering if $10 was worth it, the moment we got in we knew it was worth more than the ticket price. There were so many old motorcycles and even 1920s electric car, even an old Peugeot diesel well again of time !! Being a motorcycle enthusiast as well as owning a range of cars... More

Very interesting, all volunteers (keep it going). Though it is mostly catagorised in what was available in WA to show in a museum and the world's most complete range in car history (which can't be expected from a WA museum - imagine the costs of this), it was very interesting and they DO have a large range of interesting classic...

Visiting the wildlife park, I noted the Motor Museum and decided to have a look around. Wow! What a surprise. The variety or items in this museum and the displays were really good and it certainly gave one a view into motoring in WA over the last century or so. I understand that it is run by volunteers and I... More

Discovered the museum as we were touring the Swan Valley, and my partner and his brother were very keen, being car enthusiasts. Volunteer's there do a wonderful job, and were very friendly. Was impressed that they had some really unique items and all were in fabulous condition. Would be very hot in there in summer though!
