Not many info boards but a nice assortment of vehicles. Easy parking. Negative reviews on here seem to come from those who wouldn't have visited a transport museum excerpt that the hop on hop off tour bus stopped here.

Hi, we visited the James Hall Museum on the 9 August. Was our first visit with our 4 yr old son. We had a lovely experience. Our little one was very excited to see all the different modes of transport. He is crazy about cars...More

We had 30 mins here before the our next hop-on hop-off bus arrived. That was enough time to look over their collection and have a toilet break. The museum is free. There are some interesting cars but overall a very small collection with limited information...More

It was great to see all the old transport favorites of yesteryear, but sad to see that not all is receiving the attention in upkeep that they should, before long the old reliables will also be scrap metal of the past.

Can't believe that this attraction is free. There is so much to see and explore that it's well worth an entrance fee. Could use a bit of updating but it's a lot of fun anyway. Great for kids or adults who like cars.

Set in an area that is not altogether safe, yet commonly visited. Has a fascinating array of machines. Little dilapidated.
