This is one amazing place! Paved pathways wind through lovely gardens with plants, flowers and trees. Something is always in bloom. There is also a car barn full of beautifully maintained antique cars - each with a story. There is a history museum and an art museum. There is always a special exhibit of some kind. This year the exhibit... More

Lovely gardens, plus very interesting exhibits, make this attraction well worth a visit. The gardens provide a most enjoyable walk with views of beautiful flowerbeds, water features...even a picture perfect windmill. The car exhibit was outstanding, containing a very impressive collection of rare and unusual autos from different eras. Really---this is a cool place!!!

We loved the Heritage Museum. It had vast, green grounds that you could walk around on (with a stroller) and at the time, we saw the Big Bugs exhibit, which was nice. The automobile exhibit is really interesting and the cars are beautiful. The cafe in the Gardens isn't so bad and is a good place to grab a snack/drink... More

This had good reviews but I think I was expecting too much coming from England where we have spectacular gardens with year round interest. The museum bits were interesting enough but apart from nice floral displays by the entrance and around the windmill the rest of the site was mainly woodland - nice enough but not what I wanted to...

As a group we took the reserve ahead in depth tour of the museum. We got to look at the cars that are not on display and all the facts about them. They only do this tour once per month and it was worth it! It's amazing how this collection came together in a few years. All it takes is... More

My wife and I visited as part of our honeymoon and felt that we were able to get a pretty thorough experience of everything. We started off with about a half hour in the antique car museum, which was neat and a lot of fun, even for not bring specifically car enthusiasts. We wandered around all of the different gardens,...

There is something for everyone in this wonderful place. The Automobile Museum is full of beautiful old cars, the 1931 Duesenberg is probably many people's favourite. The grounds are equally as enjoyable, with many paths taking you through trees, flowers and down to the lake. It's easy to find some peace and tranquillity here away from the crowds. Sit in... More
