The Outdoor Guide had a private tour around the Isle of Man Motor Museum when filming with Julia Bradbury for her new 6 part walking series. Located on the former RAF Jurby in the north of the Isle of Man, the Isle of Man Motor Museum was purpose designed and built to house over 300 vehicles and was opened to the public in May 2015 by the Lieutenant Governor of the Isle of Man, His Excellency Adam Wood.
The Museum was founded and funded by father and son team Denis and Darren Cunningham to act as the public home for their collection of over 130 vehicles. The Museum also hosts over 150 other vehicles on loan from other enthusiasts and collectors.
The Isle of Man was chosen as the location for the Museum due to the unique place the Island occupies in motoring and motorsports history. The Island is the motorcycle road racing capital of the world and has hosted the famous TT races on the public roads annually since 1907. The Southern 100 and the Festival of Motorcycling are also fantastic opportunities to see road racing here.
“We thoroughly enjoyed our tour around the museum, Denis and Darren are so passionate about their collection it was a trip well worth it!”
