The red barns are full of great cars. The old gas station/garage was a good photo location too. Worth your time.

I'll start by saying I'm not a big car guy. I was wondering if it would be worth the price of admission. Let me just say this place is INCREDIBLE! Impeccably maintained property with a cool little vintage diner on the property and LOTS of interesting cars. My favorite part was actually seeing the vintage hood ornaments. Kept us entertained...

Great place to see an awesome display of vintage cars. The cars are amazing to see in person. Ford, Cadillac, Lincoln, to name a few. There is even a building with pedal cars for kids. Fun place to go.

Its been 10 years since I was here and they added a lot more to it. New buildings with more cars and exhibits. It's especially good to go during a special event like a car show so there are even more cars to look at.

The collection that is on display at the Gilmore Car Museum is great! There are numerous buildings to go into to see many different specimens. There is even a building with children's peddle cars, and a small building with motorcycles (The Fonz's bike is on display). The facility is out in no mans land, but it is definitely worth the...

This is one of those "off the beaten path" places you don't want to miss. Housed in several buildings, The Gilmore Car Museum has 100's of beautiful automobiles mainly made in the USA, going back to the early 1900's. While some of the buildings contain a mix of manufactures, grouped according to maker or type of vehicle, other buildings contain... More

My husband and I just loved this place. I recommend getting there when they open up if you want to take pics. We had the place pretty much to ourselves and didn't have to worry about people getting in our pics.. Staff are friendly and informative. Will be back...

It's been a few years since I went up to Gilmore. Last time it was a weekday in the fall and it wasn't busy at all, which was great. This time it was for the British Car Show on a Sunday in the summer, so it was really busy. It was also great! The British Car Show brought in hundreds... More
