This was my first trip to the Gilmore Museum as I wanted to see the new Lincoln Motor Company exhibit, and the museum did not disappoint...this is a fantastic place for car enthusiasts and non-car folks alike, and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

We drove from New Mexico to Hickory Corners MI just to see this museum and it was worth it. I have been to a number of car museums but never one with as many pristine antique vehicles as this place. There is so much to see that we could not adequately check it out in one day. My wife and... More

This must be car heaven for all the great old cars....they are pristine, well maintained and beautifully displayed. Hard to believe, out in the middle of nowhere, this amazing museum exists. It is well worth the effort to see these wonderful, gorgeous cars shown with such care. Even my teenage son was completely amazed by cars he'd only heard of,... More

Our kids bought my husband the Model T Driving school experience. In addition to that being great fun, the museum itself has some beautiful cars from our past - Packards, Pierce Arrows, Hudsons, plus many others. All are beautifully restored. There is even an area with old pedal cars kids used to play with. We ate at the Diner there... More

This place is truly unbelievable. They have an absolutely amazing collections. There are cars here you will never see again anywhere in the word. They even have entire buildings filled with just hood ornaments and pedal cars. Plan on spending at least half a day here.

Every era of the automobile is housed in these wonderful barns, all beautifully restored to their show room heyday! You'll need a good amount of time to enjoy all of the throwback goodness that has been collected--there's even a building just for children's vintage pedal cars! You can't help but smile because each turn will bring another flood of memories... More

The Gilmore Car Museum is the best auto museum that I have experienced. In addition to the comprehensive museum owned collection, the Gilmore hosts marque museums for Franklin, Cadillac (new museum opening later this year), Lincoln, Model A Ford, and Pierce Arrow. Allow a full day for exploring this fine museum if you want to see all of the exhibits.... More
