Johanna Musset, SE-274 22 Skurup, Sweden
"This is one of my personal favourites anywhere. The collection comprises not only cars and motorbikes, early commercials, horse drawn carriages and so on, but artifacts from days of yore. theres even a turn of the century swedish smithy, something for Buzzy perhaps? Unfortunately, the website is only in Swedish, but its easy enough to navigate. What makes this interesting, is that it was the result of one man never throwing anything away! Their theme days are usually brilliant!" | Johanna Musset
Svedinos Bil-Flygmuseum, Ugglarp, SE-310 50, Sweden
"I can recommend this one highly, mainly due to the fact that they have a selection of cars, motorbikes and aircraft. All of the exhibits are listed on the website. Its well worth a look!" | Svedinos Bil-Flygmuseum
