The museum changes and you may see cars from all different era's and maker's from time to time. We go at least once every 12-18 months and see different stuff all the time. Never a dull visit and highly recommended. The place is spotless and you can park inside the museum most days.

Different than most museums with a lot of foreign and small cars esp. 3 wheel cars. Really enjoyed my visit.

We really enjoyed this museum. Tons of things to see and helpful factoids by each automobile. Don't forget to check out their garage and get an up-close view of the monster LARC with 9 foot tires! Fascinating, informative with lots to see, but not overwhelming.

It was refreshing to go to a car museum that didn't hold emphasis on American automotive history, containing a suprisngly large collection of European cars. Some of the pieces in the collection are once offs, capturing the level of ingenuity during the early years of car design and development. My favourite is one particular car that reminds me of a...

The Lane Motor Museum is a must visit for anyone who likes old cars, especially oddball ones. The collection concentrates mostly on European makes, I don't know any other museum where you can see Tatra's, NSU's (including the first production car with the rotary engine Mazda later made famous). They also have a very good collection of microcars, On the... More

My 14 year old grandson and I had fun at the museum. They have a lot of unique cars and motorcycles. Many of them are from europe. The display is well laid out and clean. I didn't realize there were so many specialty car makers. Even saw an old VW bug like the one I used to own. Well worth... More

If you are interested in cars from other countries other than the US, that you may enjoy this. Sadly, we were not. Some interesting different items though.

This is a great car museum hidden in Nashville. Very inexpensive and full of unique and interesting auto history. Very historical with cars that shaped the industry. Motor bikes as well are here. Great for young, old, male and female. Plan plenty of time because you will want to stay longer than you thought.

For a very small entrance fee $18.00 for 2 retirees and two kids we had free roam of the museum. The vehicles were barrier-free, allowing you to lean into, under and above them - - but no touching. What a very eclectic collection of vehicles. My granddaughters were bored immediately while I was in heaven. The variety of vehicles from... More

This place was great! We've been to a lot of car museums, but this one was very unique. They had such a mix of vehicles and they were really rare and cool! We all loved it! It's not a huge place, but all the vehicles were interesting and not your usual variety. Recommend it highly!
