Nice gem for car buffs

If you are a car buff, then this is the place you want to go. There are some beautiful vintage cars here and lots of information on the auto industry, Even the kids love it.

A beautiful display of vehicles along with a room showing the restoration process. They also have a lot of "hands on" things for the children and a revolving display on the second floor. That what makes it worth returning.

This is a small to medium sized car museum with a "visiting" display that changes from time to time. There are opportunities for children to do a few hands-on items as well. I am not a car buff, but the guys in my family found it interesting. Some coupons are available to reduce admission price as well. This was a... More

I've been here a couple of times and really like it except there isn't much here. It does have some great exhibits but you can see the entire museum in about a half an hour. They regularly change exhibits but not worth it to go back often.

We brought our 2.5 yo son here and he loved it. He did want to try and touch every car but luckly there is a race car and a mack truck he was able to sit in. There were also other touch points for him so he had a blast and couldn't get him to leave. We spent about an... More

Absolutely fascinating display of floors of beautifully preserved vintage vehicles. We adults loved it, but so did our grandchildren who wandered for hours looking at cars they could only dream of! Anyone living or visiting in the area should make a point of visiting this extremely well done museum.

Was in the area and able to visit this great museum. Great volunteers! Very interesting, well displayed exhibits, many related to Mack Trucks. Even riding out the tornado alert did not detract from our visit!

I have always appreciated the classic cars and this Museum has a huge selection of all types of cars. Sport , antique and one of a kinds. Visit at you own pace. No rush. There are also motorcycles and trucks.they go over the history of the vehicle and have pictures to go along with it.

I love to see the selection of cars from the 1920 through the 70's. They have a nice gift shop and a theater. Great place to take the kids on a rainy weekend.
