Great museum for car enthusiasts. My husband enjoyed the year by year collection of Corvettes, the Pontiac and Chevy muscle cars including a 65 Z16 Chevelle. Cars are not roped off so you can see the interiors and under the hoods.

Okay, I know the car museum is moving down the road to the old Sweetbay location, which will suit it much better as a museum. But while Muscle Car City Diner is still in operation, you MUST go. Especially if you like good old-fashioned, hard-to-find, 1950s-style diners like in New York and New Jersey. And, unlike the museum, the diner's... More

We visited here on a recent trip to Florida. This museum- basically one man's collection-is a great place if you are a fan of the Chevys from the 50s, 60s and early 70s. There is other memorabilia and items for sale as well. The price $12.50 plus tax was a bit excessive in my opinion. We have been members of... More

Although a bit pricey ($40 for the two of us including lunch), this is a great trip down a boomer's memory lane. All the cars are built by GM. Cameros, Vettes, GTO's, Chevelles, you name it. There were many terrific and unique older cars. Neither my wife nor I are enthusiasts but we spent between 2-3 hours touring this museum.... More

This is the place to go to get back in time. You will be very pleased with the museum. The entire museum is very clean and orderly. The selection of cars is outstanding. It will bring back memories of your past years in the younger years.

The cars were simply awesome. A lot of care was taken to restore these muscle cars. A must see for most tourists!

I was surprised by the number of cars. Great collection with lots of the hot rods I wanted my Dad to buy me. Mostly Chevys but some Pontiacs as well. Particularly enjoyed the 'vettes and Camaros. There were some colors that I don't remember but most will take you back to the 50s and 60s. Nice place to spend the... More

My husband and I recently stopped at the Muscle Car City Museum on our way to Ft Meyers. If you like GM muscle cars this will be worth the visit. The cars are all in mint condition and the staff is friendly and knowlegable. My husband is a Corvette lover and was very pleased with the vast collection offered at... More

Although the entry fee is steep; $12.50 for adults and the only discount is for Vets ($2.00), the museum is a great place to visit. 55,000 sq ft building is packed wall to wall with GM cars from the 50's and 60's. The Corvette collection is awesome with every Vette ever made including a 54 model. Lot's of Pontiacs and... More
