As you drive up it never seems to be very busy, but there is no doubt it is very worth a visit. The vehicles are well displayed with excellent descriptions. Enthusiastic volunteers to either show you around or answer any questions. As a visitor to car museums world wide, if you really like cars, this place is not to be... More

Went there for the first time last Sunday. Not crowded and saw some very interesting cars. Most of the cars are roped off so you can't get close enough to see inside the cars. Takes about a half hour or so to see everything. The back room is very dark and you'll need a good flash if you want any... More

Very nicely maintained collection. Enjoyed speaking with friendly, knowledgeable, and spirited museum staff. Overall, a nice way to spend an hour and a good value for the admission price. Be sure to print coupon from their website in advance.

We went into this place with hopes of seeing a traction Avant. Sadly the car wasn't there. We did get to see lots of other cars as well as the odd speed boat, piano and some old 80s video games. A strange but not altogether unpleasant joint. The staff were very friendly and helpful. At the end of the visit... More

I expected something bit else, only old cars in museum, but was surprised with all those cars during many years since 30's till now a days. Old vehicles are unbelievable! New modern cars look gorgeous!! Love to see Ford mustang in 3 versions during its time.

Worth a visit to take you back in time. I really enjoyed the cars in the extra garage area because you can get real close to them and look in the interiors. I wish I could have gotten that close to all of them but I understand not everyone will be as cautious as me.

A real find of classics! Go on Sunday when the cars are being exercised and you might luck out with a free ride in a classic. Only down side is facility can be warm, not enough a/c.

There is a wide variety of different cars from different eras, most of which are in excellent condition. I've been here a couple of times over the last 10 years, and it's definitely worth a look if you like classic cars, and you're in the area.

This museum has some lovely cars a lot of which you just wouldn't see in car shows as they are so rare. Some do have cosmetic faults, but does a car have to be in absolutely perfect condition to be of interest or be an exhibit on a museum? In my book, no. Having said that, the place is a... More
