The Haynes International Motor Museum

 The Haynes International Motor Museum near Yeovil has over 400 cars and motorcycles and claims to be the largest of its kind in the UK. The museum is a charitable trust and part of the company that brought you those famous Haynes Manuals.

The museum was opened in 1985 and restores and maintains many types of vehicles. The vehicles at this museum are all in working order and they do actually get driven at least once a year. There is everything here from old British favourites to American cadillacs and there are some very rare vehicles too. The history of motoring is well documented at the museum and visitors can walk through ten halls packed with every imaginable type of automobile. There are also some military vehicles on display. The museum has a gift shop and a cafe and some interesting vintage arcade games. Fun for all the family!
