We loved this quirky museum, so much to see in the 5 barns – my husband could have moved in, and certainly wanted to get a job there! We spent hours perusing the cars and working out how much it would cost to ship our favourites back to the UK. The antique malls are worth a look too – they... More

wow what a hidden gem this place is. The amount and quality of cars and trucks on display is amazing,we spent a fair few hours wondering around, absolutely amazed at the standard. Highly recommend a trip here, even if you are not a car enthusiast.

We haven't been to Volo Auto Museum in quite a few years, so thought it was time to go back and take our 6-yr granddaughter along. While she is not the super car enthusiast that my husband is, we weren't sure what to expect. But -- thankfully, she enjoyed it. There are 5 different 'barns' with cars, as well as... More

I printed a two for one coupon off the net. I got there at 10 when they opened and was glad as on my way out, there was a line to get in. I am not a big car fan, as if they run and get me from point A to point B I am happy. That being said I... More

Took my great nephews who, because of video games and movies, are beginning to get into cars. They had a blast. They enjoyed seeing cars from the movies as well as the rooms with themes for younger visitors. Many of the cars are for sale, so if you have a deep nostalgia streak make sure to bring the check book,... More

This is great for any motor loving person. Things also for the kids to do. Acres of fun old cars, movie remakes, military and more. Great trip in nearby Chicago land suburbs without tourism. Enjoy all the nearby ateas.

It was a little far from our rv park, but worth the trip. This place has 5 huge buildings, housing all kinds of beautiful classic cars. There is a fantastic duesenberg exhibit, cars from movies and tv shows. I took lots of wonderful photos. A lot of the cars are for sale and the prices are not bad. There is... More

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
