HISTORY
The Bo’ness Motor Museum was first conceived by owner, Colin Anderson back in 1999. Colin asked his friend, Peter Nelson, of ‘Cars of the Stars Museum’ in the Lake District if he would be interested in opening a second museum in Bo’ness. After consideration Peter decided that Colin’s property in Bo’ness was not quite what he was looking for. Colin Anderson decided to go it alone and display his own cars and James Bond (007) memorabilia from his considerable and growing collection. The motor museum was opened in April 2004 by Bond girl Caroline Munro and Shane Rimmer and features a revolving collection with other classic motor and car museums.

FACILITIES
There is a small café.

REVIEWS

http://elmechstructuralengineering.com/category/internetdownload-managers-7/ AutoMuseums 13 July 2016 – This small museum has a film theme but also includes other cars and lots of memorabilia. It is a bit off the beaten track but well worth a visit. Bo’Ness is also home to a magnificent railway museum
