It is always good to receive praise but when it comes as a complete surprise and is completely unsolicited, then it is even better.
Clive Montellier generously left his highly complementary views of the museum on his blog. Here is a sample:
“One of the great joys of having a base in the Cotswold is the proximity of my favourite motoring museum of all time, the Cotswold Motoring Museum in Bourton-on-the-Water. At a time when more and more museums seem to be subscribing to the adage that ‘less is more’ and hiding the bulk of their collections away, the Bourton museum seems to squeeze more in every time we visit. Nor are the exhibits hidden away behind ropes and barriers. Barring the hundreds of small items that really do have to be in display cases, everything is either out on display or attached to the wall as appropriate, giving the visitor the chance to peer up close at the collection and leaving one with the rather nice feeling of being regarded as an adult capable of treating the artefacts with a bit of respect.”
