Haynes International Motor Museum

Haynes International Motor Museum 

Sparkford
Near Yeovil
Somerset
BA22 7LH
ENGLAND

The Haynes International Motor Museum was opened in 1985 and is dedicated to restore, retain and preserve motoring and motorcycling items of historical and cultural interest in England but exhibits non-British vehicles on the grounds that the complete history of the automobile and motorcycle can only be covered by looking at developments from all over the world.

As is fit and proper, there are a number of CitroŽns on exhibit.

The museum was founded by John H Haynes, OBE, of Haynes Manuals fame.

Eleven years after my visit in 1999, I revisited the museum and here are some pictures.
