Motor Museum

For many years Mathewson's displayed their own collection of classic & vintage vehicles in the Museum based at Thornton-Dale. However. Due to the popularity of our classic car auctions more space was required. Our own static collection had to be relocated to accommodate the growing number of sale entries.

This has its advantages. Due to our regular sales we now have a constant changing display of vehicles and memorabilia. Each visit will see a new selection of vehicles making the experience more enjoyable.

We try to open the Museum most days and currently entry fee is only £2.00 per adult with no charge for children. (One child per paying adult)


If you are planning on making a special trip to visit our Museum display, please telephone before travelling.  01751 474455.

Car clubs are very welcome.

Thank you.


Mathewsons Classic Cars held their Third Classic Car Auction of 2016 on Saturday 28th here at Thornton Le-Dale. Consequently, the Museum will not re-open properly until Saturday 4th June.

Thank you
