Description:

This collection of over 200 cars represents one man's 41-year love affair with the automobile. It also represents America's love affair and fascination with automobiles and the evolution of our society around the world of wheels. You'll see a variety of body types and styles. You'll enjoy the incredible detail crafted into many of these vehicles - artistic hood ornaments, instrument gauge panels, wheel styles and headlights. Coordinated together to tell their own stories and help us track the evolution of the model and of the age of automobiles. IPads are provided free of charge to give you additional photographs of the vehicle's details - some not able to be seen by the public as well as more information about the vehicles. This attraction is more than just automobiles. It features artistic displays, interactive multi-media shows and models.

We visited the Classic Car Collection while in Kearney & we had a great time. The manager was very nice & informative about the car collection. They even have Ipads you could take to tell more about the cars than just the printed info cards next to the cars.There are different areas set up, such as the drive in movie... More

We have been to car museums throughout the United States. This one is right at the top. Incredible cars on display in a wonderful manner. It is easy to view the cars and appreciate their beauty. Plan to spend a couple of hours, it is worth it.

All of the coolness of being at a well run car show and none of the hassles that go along with those. A very, very nice collection of restored and original vehicles from the late 1800's to the early 70's. Many rare and one of a kind vehicles. They have over 200 cars set in a very, very nice showcase.... More

While in Kearney for the day we found this museum advertised so decided to check it out. It is laid out really nice and we saw lots of different cars then the ones you usually see. My husband liked sitting in the 1982 DeLorean DMC-12 and I really liked the looks of the 1925 Rolls Royce Touring Car! They had... More

My buddy and I spent three hours in this collection of cars etc. Our wives were shopping so we had plenty of time to explore. What a great time, so many great autos, all polished and the whole place was extremely clean! Older cars as well as newer ones. Any car buff should check this place out!

The tour guides/docents were so friendly, and answered questions and even researched one of my questions. With 200 cars its easy to spend a entire day, looking at all the cars and reading all the information on the placards. They even have one of the cars that was bought at the Lambrecht (Nebraska) auction in 2013. A jewel of a... More
