The Museum was created by the Strathalbyn Tourism Association, with the assistance of volunteers from the community and sponsors.

In 2018, the Gilbert family announced that it would be closing it’s business in High Street after 117 years of motoring activity.

The site and it’s history made it difficult to modernise for other businesses, but the Strathalbyn Tourism Association recognised it’s potential as a Motor Museum site.

The Gilberts supported the idea and made the space available. In August 2019, the front show room was opened – in conjunction with the Strathalbyn Antiques  Fair, to promote the venue and that we needed, cars, money and volunteers, not necessarily in that order.
