ATWELL-WILSON MOTOR MUSUEM – GROUP GUIDED VISIT
The Atwell-Wilson Motor Museum is a small friendly museum situated in the heart of Wiltshire. The majority of its exhibits are cars from the 1920’s onwards, as well as a collection of motorcycles, mopeds and push bikes and other interesting motoring memorabilia and a reconstructed 1930’s style garage complete with cars.
Richard and Hasell Atwell starting their original collection with the purchase of a 1937 Buick Albermarle, which still remains a part of the Museum collection. A 1934 Vauxhall 14/6 and 1931 Singer Junior arrived shortly thereafter and the collection continued to grow. The contents are varied, from many everyday classics, to rare cars and lorries. Amongst these are a 1934 Alvis Speed 20, 1938 Daimler EL24, 1936 Rover 14hp Sports/Saloon and a 1951 Dennis Fire Engine. There is also a good variety of rare motorcycles, carrying the legendary names of Ariel, Brough, BSA, Douglas, Triumph, Velocette and Indian, to name but a few. The collection is now housed in a number of exhibition halls with on-site workshops undertaking restorations and maintenance with the majority of cars being kept in running order.
The displays are presented with related data, so that visitors can enjoy not only what is on display, but also discover a wealth of knowledge, technical detail, and in some cases, humorous, historical or little-known facts relating to the exhibits.
The MGB Register has arranged for a guided group visit of the exhibition halls and workshops and we are accepting bookings from MGCC members at £20 per person (£25 per non-member). Members MG’s will be parked in the Club Paddock at the side of the Museum and the group welcomed with tea, coffee and biscuits in the adjacent Cafeteria, before the tour starts.
