This was a much better museum than we expected. The entry fee was cheap and the assortment of cars was fantastic. All cars and motorbikes were in better condition than new. There were many clasic & rare cars well displayed. Someone obviously took lots of time & care and love to prepare this museum. Allow at least a couple of... More

I've been often before, but had to go this trip to see the Lotus exhibition, one of the rotating shows. It was great - I'm a Lotus 7 class of car fan,; and there was a very nice Lotus 7 Series 4. But the show stealer was the magnificent Lotus Esprit - I want one! Exhibition finishes in December. There... More

I have been a few times now, as the displays periodically change. Everytime, i have seen amazing cars (and motorbikes for those so inclined).

There were some nice cars and motor bikes to view. I was a little disappointed in the range of cars. Apparently they change the cars often.

A great place to spend an afternoon if you are a car enthusiast. They change some of the car displays fairly regularly. It's a short walk from CBD and it can be followed by a wander across the road to the City Park.

This gem is a 'must do' when in Launceston. Always changing, forever informative. The staff are motor enthusiast volunteers, so come along and have a chat and while you're there grab some gear from the well stocked shop! Love this museum, one not to be missed!

I'm not someone who has any experience or knowledge of automobiles but the museum had some seriously nice looking models that grabbed my attention. It was a nice showroom with many cars and motorbikes showcased.

Turned up expecting to see a plethora of vehicles as seen on their website. Not to be. The area they have is considerably smaller than what I expected and so only holds a small number of vehicles (cars / bikes). After further reading of the website, it appears that they change the display (vehicles) a few times a year. When... More

Really worth the visit, spent a lot of time wandering around - appreciating the cars. Not too expensive to visit either which is a bonus
