Stopped while heading back home from Kenosha. Had family go here but had never came here myself. There are five buildings with cars with another being the military museum. I was amazed at the excellent condition of all the cars especially the ones for sale. The biggest highlight was seeing the movie cars such as the Delorean from Back to... More

I visited the Volo Auto Museum with my 3-year-old son and my mom. Not knowing what to expect beforehand, I can happily say that we were pleasantly surprised. What You Should Know: You’ll receive a map when you pay for your admission. Keep this! You’ll need it. When I think of a museum, it’s singular. One building. The vehicles at... More

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...

Fun place for the whole family and you need a whole day to see it, 5 fabulous warehouses full of cars and movie memorabilia. A huge 5 building antique mall. a very nice indoor military display. Lots of neat stuff to buy and if you have the money, buy one of their cars for sale. They have food there and... More
