In addition to tracing over 100 years of motoring history, the museum pays tribute to Sir Malcolm and Donald Campbell who between them captured 21 world land and water speed records in the Bluebird series of cars and boats. Highlights include full-size replicas of the Campbells’ vehicles: a 1935 Bluebird car, the 1939 boat, Bluebird K4, and the 1967 jet hydroplane, Bluebird K7.
There’s also a recreation of a typical 1950’s ‘Greasy Spoon’ café, seen on the sides of Britain’s main trunk roads such as the A1 and the A6. They served (and a good many still do) mainly fried or grilled food, and were not known for the availability of healthy options.
The museum is open daily, year-round.
