  • Events Coordinator, Pauline, taking a joyride in a 1927 Bugatti Type 35B on the grounds of the Museum yesterday.
  • 🚴🏽‍♂️ Stage Two of the @tourdownunder has been through Birdwood! We think we’ll stick to vehicles with motors and air conditioning on a day like today 😉

  • We thought we had the number one Holden at the Museum until the other day! This genuine  Holden pedal car has recently been generously donated to the Museum. The donor received it for his birthday circa 1947. All original parts, including the original rubber on the wheels, that's how well made it is. This well loved toy will now go on display in our Model Behaviour exhibition of motoring toys from the past.

Peddle car pictured alongside the Holden number one on display at the National Motor Museum open every day from 10am to 5pm.
