A small Museum worth Visiting while your on the Mountain.

Staff here are fantastic, the Museum has an interesting display racing cars and bikes. I enjoyed my visit and would happily visit again, next time I am in Bathurst.

Hi, I would not go back to this museum especially when you have to pay 15 Australian dollars for admission. It's okay and it was a short walking distance from the Rydges Hotel. The gift shop is small but the people are very friendly there.

I was surprised. It is not that big, but it takes a long time to get around it. Lots of quality kit, and at the bottom of Conrod Straight, how could you go wrong?

If you're at all interested in cars and/or racing then this museum would be on your radar. There is a very good collection of cars and motorcycles throughout history with information displays.

I did have high expectations visiting what should be the Australian Motor racing Hall of Fame, although there was some great car exhibits and memorabilia, the Museum could do we investment in making it far more interactive, as the majority of experience is just looking at cars sitting on the floor. In comparison to the Gosford Classic Car Museum, this... More
