We went to Volo for our annual trip. They now have a display of motorcycles and snowmobiles in the hallways. Each showroom has wonderful restored cars. Many are for sale. My favorites are the Hollywood cars. They have also added an animated stage in their cafe. It is cute and reminds me of Chuck E Cheese. The Veterans section has... More

For car lovers, this is the place to visit. Many interesting and some rare cars on display. The antique shop on the premises has varied merchandise from many dealers.

My buddy and I made a 1/2 day of it, driving up to Volo Auto Museum. The weather discouraged an outdoor excursion. The place wasn't hard to find, multiple buildings in close proximity, along with several other buildings that house antique booths. We paid our fees and got wrist bands and a token for building 5. Almost all of the... More

Set aside at least 3 hours to make a quick dash through the cars and another 2 hours at least to see the memorabilia, antiques and collections at the Malls. You'll be amazed at the Old Cars from early 1900 through 1970. You'll see cars from movies, cars that belonged to famous people, brings back memories! Kid's will love it... More

Spent 4 hours here with my Grandson (age 9) and we had a blast. Very easy to navigate. Greeted by the fabulous Dusenbergs and then countless antique, movie star, hot rod, movies, war, novelty, every vehicle you can think of. To top it off...many vehicles from the 50's and 60's...it was like walking through my high school parking lot! Road... More

I went here with my daughter and granddaughter and WE just loved it!!! There is SO much to see so plan on spending a lot of time here. Then across from museum there is an antique mall. Went to that for a little bit but we didn't leave enough time to actually get in any shopping. Will plan differently next... More

We were hoping to see a museum of groupings of models according to model and years. This is a hodgepodge of vehicles all apparently for sale. There are some interesting pieces and some beautiful Duesenberg vehicles. The rest of the buildings have a mixture of makes and models all mixed in together. This is just not what we expected. We...

From the outside it doesn't look as a place that has a very car collection with several Hollywood icons. Go and visit the place in the weekend and you will have lot's of fun.

You have to love cars. It starts off good with a Dusenberg room- very interesting but goes down from there if you are not a rabid car person. Who cares that there is a reproduction of a car that was used in a movie or even 1 of the 6 cars used in a movie/tv show or an example of... More

A must visit to mourn George Barris... There are plenty of historic and Hollywood cars. The staff spoke of a rocket snowmobile recently purchased and not exhibited yet.
