Our Museums are temporarily closed until further notice.
The National Motor Racing Museum celebrates the rich history of Australian Motor Sport, with a particular focus on Bathurst and Mount Panorama as the spiritual home of Australian motor racing. Located at Murray’s Corner, Mount Panorama – an address the envy of motor sports Australia wide.
From humble beginnings as a temporary display, the Museum, then known as The Bathurst Motor Racing Museum was officially opened in 1988 by the late Peter Brock. Through changes in name and the move to our current location, the Museum and collection has grown substantially over the last 30 years to cover all facets of motor sport from the 1920’s to the present. The stories of drivers and events are told through original trophies, race suits, leathers, race footage and photographs.
See many of the dominant machines that ran in Australian touring car, open wheeler, rally, motorcycle and speedway races. Take in one of our ever-changing exhibitions and experience the spectacular Immersive Room which gives visitors a taste of the speed, sound and excitement of racing at Mount Panorama.
