Isle of Man Motor Museum
Situated on the former RAF Jurby in the sunny north of the Isle of Man, the privately funded Isle of Man Motor Museum was purpose designed and houses over 500 vehicles. Opened in May 2015, it has become a petrolhead’s paradise with something for everyone to enjoy.
Packed with some serious metal, the Museum is truly a world class destination featuring some of the world's greatest vehicles. We celebrate the Isle of Man's esteemed motoring heritage and everyone in the family will enjoy our stunning collection.
From unique prototypes to TT winning motorcycles, early steam cars to 1980s hot hatches, a hovercraft to a Space Capsule, a Charabanc to a Greyhound bus, we aim to show the evolution of motoring from its very beginnings right through to the present day via the nostalgic classics of yesteryear.
Our latest exhibits for 2022 include a room dedicated to Peel Engineering, the only car manufacturer in the island's history and makers of the famed P50, the world's smallest car; a prototype Citroën M35 chassis and engine giving an insight into how these vehicles work. Our TT Museum has a scale replica of the world renowned 37.73 mile TT course created by our workshop team in steel pipe. Mounted onto the end wall of the Museum, alongside it hang 18 genuine TT course marker boards and 7 mile marker boards.
Our paved display area can comfortably accommodate 50 vehicles and is a great space for those all important group shots with the Museum display window as a backdrop. We have additional capacity for 50 cars along the side of the Museum and for larger clubs, we have a further 90 spaces in the main car park.
The Guard House cafe adjacent to the Museum provides both food and drinks.
Our summer season runs from April to September and during this time we are open 6 days a week (closed Wednesdays but bookings can be made by prior arrangement if required). Visits may be possible outside of these times by prior arrangement.
Starting with the 1904 Gordon Bennett Trials, the Isle of Man occupies a unique place in both motoring and motorsports heritage. Every year, TT riders take on the fearsome 37.73 mile Mountain Course now averaging well over 130mph. Throughout the year, the Island’s fabulous driving roads and stunning scenery provide all enthusiast drivers and riders with an ideal destination to exercise their machines.
