I have always wanted to go here and we finally did! Its a huge compound filled with cars. Some of which are for sale!!! But you will see cars from movies, cars owned by the rich and famous and cars from different periods. This place is truly amazing. They also have an antique mall. I didn't get much of a... More

Such an amazing selection of beautiful and classic cars! And most of them are for sale! You can spend hours touring their numerous show rooms. Don't forget to grab a quick bite to eat and try their homemade fudge.

We came here for Father's Day weekend, and were shocked at the long line to get in (took about 30 minutes). However, once we got in, it wasn't cramped at all. There is just so much to see and LOTS for the little kids too! If you have time, they have lots of shops as well.

We visited with my parents, spouse and children (three generations). It was a nice way to spend a chilly Spring afternoon. Very clean and expansive car collection - it was fun to hear my Dad talk about what cars he drove or lusted after as a teenager, and to see the progression of the automobile from the beginning to now.

My wife and I visited the Volo Auto Museum on a Monday. The good thing was that it was not very busy the time we were there and didn't have to fight crowds. There is an excellent collection of Dusenbergs as you first enter the museum. Throughout the Museum there are different buildings you go through (total of 5) that... More

This place had been recommended to us by my brother and sister-in-law. I kind of like old cars so I thought it might be interesting, but didn't expect it to be as massive as it is and as much fun. The room of Duesenbergs was incredible. It really made you want to take a ride in one (because very few... More

My wife is not a fan of looking at cars, but she found this place fascinating as well as myself. There are so many old US cars that even we had heard of, in fanastic restored condition. There were also cars of famous people and autos from films and TV series. Even the original outboard motors, motorbikes and everything was... More

My husband, son and I visited the Museum in March. I was not sure my son being 11 years old would enjoy it. I knew I would with the antique malls. Place is HUGE. We found a lot of great buys. My son did not complain at all! He was very interested in every car he seen. He now has... More

My sister lives down the street from this museum and we've passed it many times but I never thought it would be interesting enough to go to. I had 5 kids to entertain for about an hour or so, so I decided we might as well go check it out. I am SO glad we did. Right outside the museum... More

I took my daughter to Volo during a Spring Break trip back in April. I had been wanting to see the museum since I saw a car they had at one of the over-the-highway rest areas on 294 in Chicago. First of all, the place is really big. You will need 2-3 hours to get through it, if you are... More
