There IS something that will appeal to every one. You enter thru a food court area that is a bit cheesy, but good to have if you spend several hours looking around. There are five buildings, starting with truly beautiful classics. Duesenberg was featured on this trip. The next building contained specialty cars from the movies and TV. Flinstones, Munsters,...

A GREAT TIME was had by all. The showrooms were clean and a pleasure to walk through. Whether you are a car buff or not, there is something to see. Even my 9 year old daughter had fun (though she won't admit it). Had her picture taken in the Flintstones car. Really liked seeing Ralph Loren and Tony Curtis's car,... More

This museum is so fun, even if you aren't a huge car lover. But, if you are a car lover, plan a long time to be here. There are many showrooms of cars, from luxurious, to old sports cars, to Johnny Cash's guitar car! They have many cars from movie/TV sets, such as the Back to the Future DeLorian, Nightrider,...

If you like classic cars and antiques this is the place for you. 5 warehouses full of cars for sale. A very large antique mall and lots of neat little shops to check out.

Tucked away in Volo, IL (45 minutes North of Chicago), you will find five buildings filled with a variety of classic cars, movie cars(created by Barris) and a number of Dusenbergs. Each is more beautiful than the others and are either in original shape or restored. Must be more than 300 vehicles. Brings back lots of memories to all us... More

loved this place, wanted to bring all the beautiful cars back to the U,K with me. Seeing all the cars from the movies I have seen thru my life was so exciting. You have to go its a must if u like classic American cars.

Three generations of us walking the 5 buildings of class, custom and celebrity cars. Mix in a lot of memorabilia, a building dedicated to US armed forces and a few extra builds of antique stores and there was something for everyone. Much nicer than I remember it from years ago, they are really improving and adding to the collection (with... More

For over 20 years, I lived less than an hour from the Volo Auto Museum, but never went there. Too bad. It is fantastic. If you are a 50's guy like me or just love old cars, don't miss this place. And if you really get carried away, you can buy one of these old beauties for a fairly reasonable... More

From antique cars to one of a kind Hollywood cars, they have over three hundred examples of yesteryear and memorabilia. Many cars are for sale, but purchase is not required to view. Five large warehouses neatly organized with vintage cars and muscle cars with background information on each vehicle. Some very unusual cars from the movies and cars the Hollywood... More

To say this place is amazing is an understatement! We spent the entire day - from opening until closing - and wished we had more time. I don't believe there's any place else where such a variety of vintage vehicles can be found in one location. I love museums and tend to ask a lot of questions. Everyone we talked... More
