An amazing collection of great cars.

We had no idea that their car collection was so extensive. There were cars with great historical significance. It is a wonderful way to spend a day in Sarasota.

So it is not a huge museum with acres of vehicles but it was very interesting. It is car museum but there were an assortment of other interesting collectibles also. Some old sewing machines, cameras, arcade games and of course motorcycles. What I enjoyed was it wasn't just a bunch of super exotic cars I had only seen on tv... More

Went there for a musical tribute for the Bee Gee's. Kind of crowded by easy to move around. Drinks available for the show. We did not go into the museum but just for the show that was on that night. It was great and we enjoyed it. Stayin Alive! Stayin Alive!

My husband and father in law visit frequently to see what is new. More unusual and antique cars than any dealer lot. Affordable day for all under an air conditioned roof.

I say just go to an old car show around town. This place was great in the day but lots of items have been removed. so sad! Not worth the price.

I just went along with the group not being particularly interested in old cars. I did find myself enjoying some of the more unusual cars on display, however. There are quite a lot of cars to see and even better is the dealership on the other side of the building. It's loaded with fabulous old cars for sale. The building... More

Visiting the Sarasota Classic Car Museum is a must if you love Cars. Give your self at least an hour to see all the cars. Really loved the attention to detail and the displays are very professionally set up. The amount of cars and amount of information is extensive. The Lady that greeted us at the front desk was very...

This is worthwhile museum to see. You can view on your own or with a tour guide. The guide is very good. It was great to see car types that i had owned in the past. I wish i had kept that Jaguar XK120, the MGTF and the 1950 Ford convertible.After you have toured the museum be sure and go... More

We visited this museum as a rainy day activity. We were lucky to have the rain or we would have passed this up. It's very well done with informative signs on each car. It brought back lots of memories and we saw a number of cars we would gladly take home if we could. Don't wait for a rainy day... More

Due to heavy rain in area and needing an indoor activity to do this was excellent to learn about older cars. They had cars from all era's including a few Famous ones. They had more than cars though on show including cameras etc that is worthy of any great museum. I would highly recommend a visit to learn about the... More
