Be sure to go to their website ahead of time and print out a discount coupon. The $15 standard admission is extremely steep for a small-town attraction, and even the discounted $13 was pricey. That said, the Volo Auto Museum is worth a visit. They have five buildings (plus some outdoor exhibits) that include a wide range of cars. There... More

We visited the Volo Auto Museum on a Saturday and arrived at 10 am when they opened. I'm not a car nut, but I really enjoyed looking at their great collection. Unfortunately, as noted by other reviewers, there is really no history on the autos or any organization to the lay out of the museum. Many of the cars have... More

Haven't visited since the 70s when I was a kid so wanted to go back and check things out. Still an awesome place to go, for sure. Lots more vintage cars for sale. (Prices don't seem too bad, either!) Interesting autos, gas and oil stuff, bicycles, pedal cars...you name it, if it has or had wheels, you'll find it here!... More

We toured the auto museum and found so many cars from the past and absolutely fell in love with this place. Many of the cars were from TV and movies as well as classic models. In addition, we visited the antique mall, 5 in total. Great day and great visit. Volvo is only one hour from downtown Chicago and convenient... More

This is one of best auto museum's I have toured. You can spend an entire day (wear comfy shoes) or just view a few of the exhibits. It also changes from time to time, so no two visits are ever the same. You will see car's from all era's and car's you recognize from your fave movie or TV show.... More

Had a great time here. We have lived within 5 miles of this gem for 30 years and on a cloudy day decided to take it in. There were 5 buildings of car and other modes of transportation that were in pristine condition and beautifully preserved. Each car has historical information and many vehicles that were featured in movies or... More

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.
