John Haynes OBE – The Man, the Manuals and the Museum

John Haynes, Haynes Manuals motoring historyJust 135 years ago the first ‘car’ road trip occurred and since that moment there has always been a special place in our hearts for the motorcar. John H Haynes OBE was one such car enthusiast, whose love for motoring was the driving force behind the hugely successful Haynes Manuals, which became the global go-to guide for car and motorbike owners.

This exhibition explores: ‘The Man’, John’s life, his energy, the support of his wife Annette and his love of people and life; ‘The Manuals’, the petrol-head entrepreneur feeding a new culture of hands-on enthusiasm for repairing your own vehicle and of course ‘The Museum’, his legacy, the cars and the stories behind them.

 Welcoming you back safely
