I have only been here once. It had a good display of about 20 cars, but much better photos and exhibits. Not worth the trip for, but a great diversion during the automobile show or visiting the park.

It's been several months since I visited, but as a non-car buff, I really enjoyed it. Cars can be beautiful works of art, and there are both permanent collections and rotating collections to see here. I enjoyed it enough to gift my brother, who lives much closer, a membership for his birthday. The building, an old Saratoga Spring Water bottling... More

This is the 2nd time visiting the museum. This time it was all about NASCAR;very interesting although we are not fans. Our 1st visit was on the old time Woodies; which we loved. Themes change periodically-worth checking it out!

I do not care much for auto museums one way or the other. My late husband loved this museum, almost could not get him out of it. There is also one of Saratoga's health springs very near by.

If u are a car buff they have new shows all the time- and of very high quality. Bring a cup because across the street is one of the best tasting springs. You will see a line most of the day for the water.

Small museum, with interesting displays. The current Nascar exhibit is good, but not very extensive. Lots of standing behind barriers and reading long placards. Some more video or multimedia displays would have been much more engaging. The museum itself is not great for kids, but the kid room is good. The racing simulator would engage kids old enough to enjoy... More

I like the SAM because we don't have much like it in the area. They rotate the displays on a fairly regular basis - they're here long enough to ensure you can see one you like, while changing often enough to make it worthwhile for 3 or 4 visits a year. However, the museum is on the small side, and... More

We came to see the Daytona Moonshine to Racing exhibit and while greeted by a polite host at the desk, the rest of the Tour was a letdown. The multimedia display consisted of just placard stands and a few posters on the walls. Luckily the few cars they had were indeed sparkling and rare! The cars were set up in... More

Beautiful antique cars on display here all in mint, gorgeous, gleaming condition. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip here and the staff were super knowledgeable and loved to chat about the cars! They even have their own pine tree air freshener, "Avenue of the Pines." Looking forward to returning, thank you!
