This place is so great to take out of town guests, they are all impressed. It doesn't matter if you are 8 or 80 you will enjoy the displays. One of the most reasonably priced activities in the area. My grandsons and I go every year for the train exhibit. The volunteers who answer questions, etc. are always willing to... More

Museum had a wide range of cars, trucks and even vintage construction trucks. The staff is very kind and happy to answer any questions. The museum 50's diner has a restored soda fountain and a vintage hubcap Christmas tree. This museum is a must see.

Wonderful time with the family, each having a different car they were interested in, traveling back in time. A great selection of old and restored cars and trucks to tell the story of transportation.

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.
