The Movie Car Museum

Everyone notices different ones...

Cars which have only existed in a fantasy world are suddenly right there in front of you.

For some, the experience is really magical, as for a child who recognises the flying Ford Anglia from Harry Potter.

Fans both young and old are likely to recognise the Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo as well.

The Batmobile from the 1989 Batman is hard to miss as well.

Naturally, the museum has some vehicles which will interest fans of classic cars: the Sunbeam Tiger from the film Get Smart, the Lincoln Continental from The Matrix trilogy (both from 1965) and the Ford Gran Torino from, err... Gran Torino (directed by Clint Eastwood).

There are some genuinely high performance cars as well, such as the Tumbler from the later Batman film: The Dark Knight which can go from 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds.

There are also the 'falsely' high performance cars like the Mach 5 from Speed Racer which doesn't even have an engine (it relies on CGI).

The museum gets around 820 visitors a day, including stars such as Martin Sheen and Simon Baker, suggesting that about 16,000 have visited since it opened in June.
