This was amazing with all of the new and old cars and the thought that you can also take some of those nice new cars and actually drive them. I had to take alot of pictures of this area so that I could share with my husband.

Amazing museum. No expense was spared. Takes 2+ hours to see everything when you spend 2-3 minutes at each car. $30 for a family of three (kids 12 and under are free).

We didn't expect to see this type of museum on the property, but found it very interesting. This is the personal collection of John Hendricks, the founder of the Discovery Channel. There are cars from the Model T up through a recent NASCAR racer. Car buffs will enjoy the history of the older cars up through the WW2 era; others... More

Very informative and so much to see. Brought back a lot of memories. The history behind the collection is very interesting as well as the pre-recorded messages available around the museum.

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
