The National Museum’s beautiful new magazine, the Museum, features a great article on the Royal Daimler. Did you know that it is estimated 75% of Australians came out to see the Queen during her 1954 Tour? That’s pulling power! The mag is available through our online shop and of course in the Museum’s onsite shop. Worth a look.

"As an enthusiast of the Daimler Marque I am so pleased to see that this worthy old car has been rescued and will be conserved and restored and once again be the subject of public attention. The Daimlers were great cars, often associated with interesting events and times and hopefully this project will help to bring them back into the hearts and minds of the Australian public."
