The museum was completely shut down when we went there and I don't know if it will reopen based on how it looked. We were disappointed because local tourist information stated it was still open.

I've been to the museum before and enjoyed it. However, I called to get the hours since we were going to be in the area. I was told that they were closed until the end of September. When we drove by, the place is boarded up.

This museum has been closed for at least 2 years. should be removed from Trip Advisor. When do you edit the listings. There are restaurants in Wells that are no longer open also.

This museum is closed. If you keep posting this, people will think it is open. I had to type a minimum of characters and this makes it over 100 characters.

This museum is now closed. It is a true shame. It had more antique cars under its roof than I have seen anywhere. I visted in July of 2013 but the dates below don't allow that date.

That was great to see as many old cars at a same place. Into the museum you can see the oldest car ever, That was the most impressive thing.
