Very fascinating, starting with the old carriages and the history associated with that. Moving into the piles peak hill racing area topped it off. On top of that it was free ! Check it out! more »
What a wonderful place! The displays of carriages, cars, saddles and more were amazing. The layout of the museum was very open and easy to view the displays. And with the many informative plaques throughout, one can learn so many interesting facts and the history behind each item. Definitely worth a visit! The museum is free and they will validate your parking in Broadmoor garage for one and a half HR free!
This place was amazing, never seen anything like this before. I was happy with our tour guide she did great explained everything to us about the car's and buggy's and there history. Great experience for me and my husband.
