About The National Holden Motor Museum
The National Holden Motor Museum was opened in July 1993 and is the oldest continuously operating Holden Museum. We currently have approximately 50 vehicles on display ranging from the 48-215 to VF.
Most of the vehicles on display are privately owned and some (like our rare prototypes and concept cars) are owned by Holden. Cars are usually on loan from one to three years. This ensures our displays are always changing so many patrons are repeat visitors.
Echuca National Holden Motor Museum takes you through the remarkable history of a company that put out nation on wheels. Your journey through Australian motoring history includes historic film footage, photographic exhibitions, memorabilia, souvenirs and car related merchandise.
Echuca is the 3rd most popular tourist location in Victoria with 1.4 million visitors annually, so it's an ideal location for a Holden Museum. Many visitors enjoy their trip down memory lane recalling that in the late 1950s to early 60s Holden had over 50 per cent share of the Australian market and every second family owned a Holden. Australians were proud of their Holdens and their patriotism showed through as they spent almost a year's wages when purchasing a new model. Many of our visitors can relate to Holden.
Tourists from all over Australia and the world visit us. Time permitting, our guests get the VIP treatment with one of us walking around with them and explaining our Holden museum and its heritage.
Many bus groups, car clubs, special interest and other groups come to visit and we offer a guided tour finishing with an airbag demonstration.
The National Holden Motor Museum has always been privately run and is currently owned and run by Mark Galea and Tony Galea who have both grown up with a love for and a collection of Holdens ranging from the 50's to the early 2000's.
The museum is located 100 metres from the Historic Port of Echuca precinct at 7-11 Warren Street and is open 7 days 9am to 5pm.
