Britain’s most unusual motor museum nears completion
Lincoln’s newest visitor attraction will soon be opening it’s doors. Situated near Boston, The Bubbblecar Museum will be the UK’s only public microcar museum, showcasing over 50 bubblecars, many in evocative period dioramas.
The museum has secured final approval on building regulations relating to the new museum and its display areas, with the local authorities concerned proving to be most helpful.
Work is underway on a mezzanine floor, which will house the museums extensive advertising and memorabilia archive. New flooring is due in coming weeks – along with the all important access staircase!
The museum development has featured on BBC Local radio, and volunteers have been lending a hand in the project too.
The latest batch of display cars to arrive include a rare Bamby, created by Yorkshire entrepreneur Alan Evans in the early 1980s. The car, which is locally owned, was unknown to the museum which has assembled a display of these strange little vehicles. A Cursor joins the display too – in pink. Possibly the ultimate in 80s bubblecar excess!
The Bubblecar Museum has a special museum preview on Sat, 5 Nov 2011. Why not come along? You need to book quickly however, tickets are going fast.
