If you have anyone who likes cars, trucks, or trains (trains are a special exhibit at Xmas time), then you will love this museum. My two children are 3 and 1 and both loved coming here to run around between the stacks and rows of pristine cars, and yell TRUCK, when they saw a giant one there as well. There's... More

It's amazing that a museum of this caliber is somewhere other than a major US city. The quality of the exhibits, the significance of the cars, trucks and other examples of wheeled transportation is truly remarkable. There is plenty to do for all, ranging from children to learned car collectors.

Very enjoyable place to visit if you like any form of transportation. They did an excellent job with every display area. They even had displays in the stairways and halls. You could spend hours wandering through the museum and not see everything that they offer. They also change their displays which keeps you coming back to see more fascinating vehicles.... More

Got a Groupon coupon and we went today to get out of the house in this snowy weather! It is only an hour drive, but we had never heard of it. We were pleasantly surprised!! Well done, well organized with knowledgeable volunteers

Awesome museum. The vehicles displayed are diverse and distinctive: cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, pedal cars, anything with wheels. They vary in age from the beginning of the automobile to current day. The displays and motifs are professionally and tastefully done and contain period correct decorative items. It is a self tour and very easy to navigate through the exhibits, and... More

A great museum devoted to the automobile, but not something that you need to visit more than once in a while (unless there is a special event going on). Small children will love seeing the cars on display.
