PROS: plenty of cars to look at; abundant parking; close to nearby restaurants, the selection of cars has something for everybody- it reminds me of the Historic Auto Attraction Museum in Roscoe, IL.; the annual pass can be worth your while if you plan on returning 2 more times. CONS: if you are sensitive to the smell of automotive oil,... More

Met 2 nephews at O'Hare and spent the day looking at cars and figuring out which ones we'd buy first if money was no option. Third time I've been there, and every visit has a completely different set of cars on consignment. I love it. My fav antique car place to visit. You can even touch and feel, as opposed... More

Coolest. Place. Ever. I didn't even know there were that many classic cars in Illinois. 5 SHOWROOMS!! I had seen billboards and heard advertisements on the radio, and I had to check it out. The atmosphere when you walk in just brings you back a couple decades. After you get your tickets, which are decently priced, you walk into a... More

This was a VERY cool auto museum. We saw a flier for it at a travel plaza and it was on our way to our destination. It was super cool, WAY bigger than I thought it would be. Nice displays and a lot of the items were for sale!

My son and I went for a father son outing on Saturday and found the Volo Auto Museum and unusually fun and educational experience. Our day was complete with a very nostalgic 50's era restaurant as you walk in for tickets, followed by at least 5 buildings worth of classic, one-off cars and a very impressive and historically correct military...

The best part is that most of them are for sale, so if ya got a pocketful of cash your in luck! Also has a huge flea market style sale... More

Wonderful display of antique and not-so-antique cars brought back memories of teen age dreams for the "hot" car of the day. Well displayed, these cars are up close and personal, clean, and expensive! Special exhibits of TV and motion picture cars were interesting and memorable. Recommend it for families with older youth and teens.

This is a fantastic place! We loved that we got to take photos on the Flintstone car! We had so much fun! My husband is a car freak so this was right up his alley! We both enjoyed seeing cars from our favorite movies! This is one place we will have to stop by again! Was worth the money! A... More
