The National Automobile Museum of Tasmania is holding its annual seniors weekend. All seniors will be admitted to the museum for free.

Museum director Brian Mathews said the event had been successful in the past and is well supported by seniors. 

“(The seniors) are delighted because of the high standard of the display,” Mr Mathews said. 

“It brings back memories that they grew up with or they were quite familiar with in their working and even their teenage years, they enjoy it. It brings the memories to life for them.

“We’ve got vehicles here spanning for the last 100 years.”

The current theme at the museum is “Lotus engineered to win”.

Mr Mathews said visitors had the chance to see more than 45 motor vehicles and motorcycles.  

One of the cars on display is the green Monaro from the Tasman Bridge incident. 

“It’s a great opportunity. Quite often the seniors being along the grandchildren,” Mr Mathews said.  

Seniors gain free entry by presenting their seniors card for this weekend only.
