A toe-tapping musical celebration also awaits families who will come visit on September 3. The day kicks off with cars and coffee, featuring breakfast fare and quality coffee in the museum’s motoring-themed cafe, located on the corner of Tufnell and Nudgee Road.


Visitors can also enjoy live music from The Swingalicious Big Band, who will be playing favourite tunes from the 1930s-50s in the Museum Foyer. The 17-piece jazz ensemble provides the perfect soundtrack as attendees browse the museum’s impressive collection of vintage and classic vehicles from bygone eras.
