Pros

  • A very impressive collection of beautifully restored cars, dragsters and even a few speedboats to gawp at.
  • Two immersive race simulation exhibits for older children (at additional cost).
  • Some interesting displays depicting the evolution of the world land speed record and how a supercharger works, for example.

Cons

  • Not a lot of things to touch or play with.
