And I'm a car guy, been to a lot of museums but this one may top them all with it's unique collection placed in 'galleries' of relevance to time and place. So if your connection is very early automotive transportation, the art cars of the Cord era or muscle cars of the 60's, they're here. The centerpiece is a Detroit... More

With more than 50 cars this collection is worth more than $30 million. One of the biggest collections we have ever seen

I've visited a couple of other car museums but this was an exceptionally impressive collection and so nicely presented! Each car was displayed clearly so you could walk around them and usually look inside and with a writeup about its history. Not to be missed and worth the scenic drive over to see!

The museum is located in a resort in Gateway Colorado. It's pretty much in the middle of no where and you need to like high desert which is what you'll see on the drive there. The grounds at the resort are beautiful with a large variety of trees, flowers and colorful shrubs. Even if your not a car buff it... More

I mean it you have to come and see this place, they have a beautiful resort with excellent room and 2 very nice restaurants. But the car museum is AMAZING. They have the only 1954 Oldsmobile F-88 in existence..Every car is one of a kind matching number piece of history. Cars that you may have never seen before and probably... More

We 'found' this museum last year and couldn't wait to return bringing our friends with us. The red rock scenery surrounding the museum and hotel is breathtaking. As you enter the museum, you recognize the wall coverings as the covers of antique road maps. All of the vehicles displayed are in pristine condition and the interiors as well as the... More

OK, so last week we made a sweep through western Colorado to take in a couple of auto museums. Second up, after the (disappointingly tacky) Allen Unique Autos collection, was the Gateway Auto Museum, about 60 miles southwest of Grand Junction, CO. The drive alone was worth it. Stunning scenery, twisty curves and blazing red rock formations greeted us along... More

We visited the Gateway Auto Museum to see the Oldsmobile F-88 (one and only in the world for $3.24 million) and were thrilled with that and the other great cars from the past. It is a most beautiful museum. The drive to Gateway, Colorado, has most spectacular scenery of red rock. We are thrilled with our entire visit!
