This museum is a product of the passions of John Hendricks. If you are within a day's drive, you should stop and see the cars. They are presented in a top quality fashion and are in great shape. From the 1916 Caddie to the Olds F88, everything is truly amazing. Pro tip: Google Olds F88 if you don't know what... More

For car buffs, this is a must! The car collection is awesome. The drive from Telluride to Gateway is breathtaking! The breakfast at Gateway was absolutely delicious. Plan to get there before 10:30am, and call ahead to make sure they will be open, and not closed for a private booking. This is a gem in the middle of magnificent scenery.

I'm not a car person, but my husband is. He says it's one of the best car museums he has been to. The admission price was included in the room rate.

Not a car buff by any means, but this was not just "Here look at a few cars" this had stories behind the automobile and quite a display.

This is one of the best museums I've ever had the pleasure of visiting! Only because I love antique cars! The owner has such a beautiful collection.

This museum is about an hour and a half from Grand Junction. It is part of a resort developed by the owner of the Discovery Channel. This is a public museum, so you do not have to stay at the resort to visit this museum. My husband has always been into classic cars, and loves watching car auctions etc. on... More

Not only is this an impressive collection, but handsomely displayed by decade. It is perfect for a corporate event, such as Welcome Reception, or group activity.

First and only automobile museum that I've visited, but can't imagine any better experience. Every auto was unique in it's own way - plus included some "one of a kind" autos. Amazing collection.
