Great collection of vintage cars. Includes cars own by the Ringlings, John Lennon and more. For sports cars buffs there is a Delorean, Lamborghini, and others. The cars are well taken care of and there is a wide variety- something for everyone. I took the tour- the guide was very knowledgable but it took too long.

First impressions are that the museum needs a some TLC. We downloaded the $1 off coupon and paid $7.50 each. We were lucky to catch a tour and the tour guide Jim was very knowledgeable about every car in the museum. The tour lasted around one hour and then we were free to roam around at our leisure. The museum... More

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.
