Haynes Motor Museum was formed to look after the wonderful collection of vehicles, automobilia, library and archive first established by John Haynes OBE in 1985. The Museum is an independent registered charity and an Arts Council England accredited museum.

The Museum is home to the UK’s largest exhibition of cars and motorbikes dating from 1898 up to the present day. Housed within 15 exhibition areas, the vast collection spans everything from the birth of motoring and nostalgic classics of the 50s and 60s to glorious Bentleys and Rolls-Royces and stunning supercars of modern day. 

Highlights include the famous Red Room, the Veteran and Vintage collection and The American Dream Hall, containing everything from a Duesenberg Model J to a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. 

The Museum also looks after an extensive supporting collection and archive. Our guiding tenets of preservation, restoration and education are a core part of our charitable objectives and are central to telling the story of the motor car.

Our vision is to inspire people to explore, discover and experience the motor car, to empower them to learn and invite them to question.
