Museum visits are by prior appointment only.
Ferguson Family Museum - museum of tractors, farm machinery, aircraft and racing cars.  Based in Freshwater, Isle of Wight
The Ferguson Family Museum was opened in 2003 by the grandson of Harry Ferguson. It is very much a personal and privately owned collection but tells the fascinating story of a man of great passion, creativity and inspiration. Having grown up as one of eleven children on a farm in Ireland he went on to become one of the 20th century's most celebrated inventors and pioneers.

The collection celebrates the life and achievements of Harry Ferguson. It depicts his life and interests in the world of agriculture, aviation and motor racing. He is nowadays most famous for his "Little Grey Fergie" tractor.  However many people are unaware of his engineering achievements in the worlds of aviation and motorsport. His vision saw a legacy of invention and design which are still an integral part of modern tractors, cars and aeroplanes.

The museum contains numerous unique exhibits and photos and is located alongside the working farm of Harry Ferguson Farms Ltd at Kings Manor Freshwater Isle of Wight. The surrounding countryside is some of the finest in the country set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with views across the River Yar estuary. It is only a short walk from the pretty village of Yarmouth, with pubs and restaurants nearby.

The museum is open by appointment only but warmly welcomes enthusiasts and clubs by prior arrangement. For further information please contact Mandy Miles on 01983 685618./td>
