Unbelievable! A must see for people that like history, music, trains and classic cars. Admission is free but to see the "collection" you need a reservation. There are 2 buildings. What makes a great tour is the tour guide. "Kyle" was 5 star! He knew his stuff, was enthusiastic, upbeat--they need to give him a raise! The volunteers do a... More

WOW! A 'must see' for all classic car enthusiasts! One museum contains classic automobiles, hood ornaments, various music making boxes and giant boxed bands and one of the world's largest working organs where they even give you a 'sample' of what it sounds like! The 2nd building is entirely full of MORE classic automobiles and celebrity cars - which are... More

We were only able to visit the automotive section of the museum and it was filled with some the most beautiful and rarest cars ever produced. Look at each display several time and you will notice something different every time. I will be back earlier in the day to do the complete tour.

More than antique cars, most of them are examples of extraordinary craftsmanship. Even non-car buffs will enjoy themselves.

This fre museum of vintage cars, vintage music players and old mechanical bands should be tops on your list. There are several hundred cars going back to the late 1800s, all restored like new and in running condition. Some are displayed in a multi story palace like setting. The musical players are unbelievable. Call for a docent tour of the... More

The Nethercutt Collection has several incredibly rare music producing machines. It has an orchestrina (a huge music making cabinet) that mechanically plays real violins. The Wurlitzer organ has 4 manuals and more stops than any organ I have ever seen. It is the 3rd largest theater pipe organ in the world. This museum would be incredible if it only contained... More

Over a hundred classic and vintage cars. A must for anyone interested in automobiles. It's free as well. Don't miss the Nethercutt Collection, which is across the road, although access is by tour only and you have to book in advance. This is also free.

The Nethercutt Collection is across the street from the Nethercutt Museum, but they are separate entities. The Collection is only open Thursday through Saturday and only by a guided tour, which are at 10 AM and 1:30 PM and advance reservations are required. (The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, with no tour and no reservations needed.) The tour lasted... More

Unbelievable car collection and wonderful story! Never thought we'd spend almost 4 hours but so much to see! The private collection tour is an absolute must! Call ahead! Don't want to give away surprises but when they open up those bronze doors in the private collection building ---it takes your breath away! Don't forget the train car behind the museum--the... More

Go online or call for tour times. Includes the one of a kind cars and the music room. Items are unique and collected from the Merle Norman cosmetics fortune. Amazing place.
