The Lambretta Scooter Museum is in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, England. Its 4,000 square feet (371.6 m2) houses a total of 61 Lambretta models – at least one from each year between October 1947 through to May 1971, collected by Nigel Cox, the author of "Lambretta Innocenti: An Illustrated History".

The private collection goes from three model 'A's first produced in 1947, to Lambro three-wheelers, Lambretta mopeds, sales leaflets, world, accessories, posters, magazines, manuals, toys, models, signs, and promotional material.[1]

In 2006, the shop and museum were sold to Stuart Lanning. After a long period of closure, the museum and its exhibits were refurbished and re-opened on 9 August 2008.[2][3] The museum was offered for sale again in 2013.[4]
