As you walk in the door of this hall of fame (This is not a museum.), the greeters at the front desk warn you that it has nothing to do with the Henry Ford Museum or Greenfield Village even though they basically share a parking lot. It's almost as if they are trying to turn you away, but I guess... More

This museum is exactly what it claims to be -- the Automotive Hall of Fame. It does not promote itself as a car museum. It is a very interesting and informative museum about the automotive industry. Yes, you do have to read the exhibits to enjoy them, but they are worth it. If you are interested in the industry and... More

This venue is only open on certain days, ring ahead. Make sure you make a full day of it. They promote it as more of a reference library, but don't be fooled. The exhibits are relevant and the stories real. I found some great books on the shelves, not in any particular order. This place needs to be put more... More

Not exciting but not exactly boring either. Some interesting things inside telling a great story of International automotive history.

I'm a huge automobile enthusiast and was excited to checkout this place. I was very underwhelmed by the facility. It looks very nice but it's almost empty in some locations. The attendant at the desk informed us that the focus of the museum was the auto makers and not the cars themselves. They showed a video from 1987 about the... More

I agree with most reviews. It is a pleasant enough place but really lacking in exhibits. I don't have to see a bunch of cars, the Henry Ford Museum is right next door and it is jam packed with automobile exhibits. The auditorium speakers are fuzzy as well. Only see this if you are finished with everything else you want... More

It was a nice place but limited in it's scope, not really a "Hall of Fame" I expected. The exhibits were well done but few in number. There are so many other more interesting things in the area only come here if you are done with everything else.
