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

We have visited this a couple of times and really enjoyed it. There is a fantastic collection of vehicles to see and a surprise around every corner. The collection includes vehicles from all over the world and an added bonus is the sales showroom next door just when you think you have seen everything take a look next door and... More

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.
