Mu­se­ums as­so­ci­a­tion

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle Maniac -

There

are mo­tor mu­se­ums all over Australia, from the familiar, like the Na­tional Mo­tor Rac­ing Mu­seum at Mount Panorama, to the rel­a­tively un­known, like the Vick­ers Holden Mu­seum in Furnissdale, WA.

Around 60 of th­ese mu­se­ums have now formed the Aus­tralasian Mo­tor Mu­se­ums As­so­ci­a­tion to pro­mote their com­mon in­ter­est in pre­serv­ing mo­tor ve­hi­cles for public dis­play. In­for­ma­tion and con­tact de­tails at aus­tralasian­mo­tor­mu­se­ums.com.au

Al­ter­na­tively, phone (03) 5145 1427 for a printed brochure.

Open­ing times are listed on­line when ap­pli­ca­ble. Some of the smaller mu­se­ums are open by ap­point­ment only. If you are driv­ing through, its best to book a few days in ad­vance.

All sorts of gems are pre­served around the na­tion, such as the ex-Bob Mor­ris A9X that reader Wayne Owens just hap­pened to con­tact us about (see Mus­cle Mail) as we put this piece to­gether.

It’s not just cars on dis­play. Listed is the Trac­tor Mu­seum of WA, the Na­tional Road Trans­port Hall of Fame in Alice Springs, the RACV Her­itage Mu­seum in Noble Park, Mel­bourne and the Bicheno Mo­tor­cy­cle Mu­seum in Tas­ma­nia.
