We definitely did not expect this museum to be as good as it is. It has a good variety of American and European cars. It is the 2nd oldest car museum in the nation. For us it was definitely worth the visit. Check out the showroom on the right side of the building as well.

This museum has a large collection of cars. We were told that the museum's owner changes the inventory often so if you visit again you are likely to see different cars. Anyone who likes vintage cars will love this museum. When you first pull up you might not think the museum is that big but it is. We enjoyed walking... More

The museum was well laid out and housed beautiful cars. There is also a high end classic car dealership next door owned by the same people which is also available for tour.

We stopped in just for a look. There were cars from all eras. Even had a Bat mobile car. The museum is free, you can't go wrong.

I love the old cars because they have more character to them and most are distinctive styling, which a lot of today's cars are missing. My brother in law and I along with my 2 daughters took the self guided tour so we can spend time looking at the models that captured our attention. Even my daughters thought several models... More

Very affordable self-guided tour of over 80 four wheel beauties where one can reminisce about days of yore and feel free to take photos of any and all favorite choice exhibits. This museum is sure to appeal to seniors who may have owned or dreamed of owning some of these priceless automobiles "back in the day."

A little tired, but with a good collection of contemporary America cars, some vintage and euro cars. A car nut will enjoy this museum, unfortunately some of the finer classics are not really restored or in the best show condition. I enjoyed the cars and people who are working hard to run the museum.

This car museum has lots of historic cars. Attached to the museum is an antique car dealer. Don't miss the beautiful classics, some for view, some for sale.
