The museum was founded in 1978 by Mike Cavanagh who sold it to the Civil Service Motoring Association in 1999.
The collection includes several motorcycles and scooters - the Levis owned by Harold Breach, a Gloucestershire motorcycle footballer. The sport often attracted crowds of over 10,000 supporters, and an exhibition about motorcycle football is planned.
The museum lists (in July 2017) some particularly rare machines as part of its collection:
BSA Aerial Swivel
Raleigh Wisp Motorised Bicycle
The Old Mill, Sherborne Street, Bourton-on-the-Water GL54 2BY, England
