Established in December 1979, the York Motor Museum is now recognised as one of the finest private collections of Veteran, Vintage, Classic and Racing Cars in Australia.
Housing the Peter Briggs collection of approximately 150 vehicles, the museum presents the evolution of motor transport with prime examples of the finest quality and workmanship from each era. These range from an 1894 Peugeot to the Williams FW07, which Australian Alan Jones drove on his way to becoming the 1980 World Grand Prix Champion.
Sited in the heart of Avon Terrace, the main street of Western Australia's most historic inland town, the museum building is a fine turn-of-the-century commercial structure that has been completely restored to it's original charm.
The exhibition area comprises three main display halls and an external courtyard. Each has a central theme related to the various eras of motoring with different vehicles forming a feature exhibit each month.
In addition to detailed information on the cars, a colourful collection of historic posters, photographs and other motoring memorabilia provides a most informative and charming setting for the vehicles.
