I was just as interested in the building as I was the cars in it.

This museum was sort of an afterthought. It's right next door to the ACD Museum, so I figured I'd give it a go since I was there. I was very surprised by the quality and... read more

This museum was sort of an afterthought. It's right next door to the ACD Museum, so I figured I'd give it a go since I was there. I was very surprised by the quality and assortment of cars. They had a little of everything. Lots of Hemi Mopars, the flagship models of all of the classics and even a few... More

The museum has so much to see. Everywhere you look there is a surprise from yesteryear. The toy models were fascinating. Especially the rubber ones. Lots of automobile history in one building. Display if IH vehicles was great. Gas pumps were great.

This museum is behind the Auburn Cord Duesenberg museum. There are more than 200 vehicles on display. They also have many toy cars and trucks and pedal cars. Plan on spending at least a couple hours here. it's the most trucks of varying types that I have ever seen.

One of the more unique museums you will visit. First, it is an eclectic collection of everything from Matchbox cars and gas pumps to a wide variety of cars. You do have to be able to process a Model T next to a GTO next to the General Lee next to a school bus. If you don't mind that, this... More

We have never seen so many model cars in one place. There are a lot of newer model cares than are in the Dusenburg museum. Very enjoyable@

Interesting mix of vehicles and wagons on display, from old wagons used in the 19th century to concept cars. Also interesting is all of the cars that have been used in TV shows that were on display, like cars from Night Rider and Dukes of Hazzard, just to give an example. Also a few race cars and motorcycles on display.... More

Visited with grandson's. They were amazed at the collections of "scale" vehicles. We enjoyed all the trucks on display -- which you don't often see. In all it was a very enjoyable afternoon.

Easily overlooked, this collection is definitely worth one's time while also visiting the ACD collection. Many of the cars are drivers rather than prize-winning showpieces, but they still display important aspects of automotive history, as does the extensive collection of auto miniatures. With NATMUS open only until five, we took a late-afternoon break to visit here, then returned to ACD... More
