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

Very nice collection of classical cars, neatly kept and clear information on each piece of car history. I wish this place could have boats as well to turn it into a Classical Transport Museum!

If Barbara is there you are in for a treat. Lots of fun stories to share. She speaks German also. There are over 80 cars to see I believe. Small fee of about 10.00 and part of the museum is free to wonder and look. A amazing wood carving -- massive size...of elephants. It is for sale too. Pricey! Great... More

This was a really fun place to visit and the lady who gave us our tickets was very nice and explained everything clearly. We went an hour before they closed and had time to see everything. If you are going to be very detailed in what you want to learn about the cars at the museum, you might want to... More

*Disclaimer - I am not the bride, but I was in the wedding party so I had a somewhat behind the scenes point of view.* They seemed to pull a bait and switch on the couple, promising things they couldn't deliver after the deposit was paid. From using the sound system to access to facilities, including the museum itself, curtain... More
