Visited the Classic Car Museum on a rainy day. What a great time. I was expecting to be a little bored, as this was picked by my husband and son. I was happily mistaken! They have about 90 cars with info on each one. SO neat to see all the cars in the collection! This is a site to see... More

The cars they have! Stopped by there by chance while visiting Sarasota on vacation. I have been to Sarasota many times, but for some reason it was my first visit to the museum. From now on, I will visit every time. There is a BMW M1, a DeLorean, and cars that have to do with John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and... More

A wonderful way to spend time out of the Florida Sunshine. Great classic cars displayed in their glory. Even if you are not a car nut, is a good place to visit to bring back memories.

Rather unassuming from the outside - magical inside! Huge collection of amazing classic cars, motor cycles, memoribilia. You won't be disappointed.

Just a little way out of Sarasota on US41 this museum is well worth a look. We went due to unusually poor weather we had in our first few days in Sarasota and it was well worth it. Lots of classic and unusual cars. John Lennon's Mercedes from the late 70s is here as is Paul McCartney's green mini from... More

They have a good collection of interesting cars in the main area. John Lennon, and Paul McCartney cars are the feature attraction; but those cars are fairly ordinary except for the owners. What impressed me was the back room which was not climate controlled and had some very interesting one off, design experiments. Don't miss those! It is a shame... More

We visited the Classic Car Museum In October. The building is old and a little dark. The employee working the front desk was very nice and helpful. There is a map of the cars and many of them. Some unique vehicles there. Not bad, something to do on a rainy day.

I've never had much of an interest in classic cars but accompanied my boyfriend who is a huge fan . I think I was as impressed and in awe as he was ! So much history and so much time was put in to restoring these gorgeous vehicles . Great place to visit for people of every age group .... More

This was a real find. A Car Museum with classic cars from most countries. Paul McCartney's car and john Lennon's cars were something I wasn't expecting. Beautifully displays and kept spotlessly clean. Some Environmental cars along with a Dragster and early Ford (or two). If you love cars this is a must. We spent a couple of hours there and... More
