Something for all...of interest to the average car appreciator as well as the collector of the unique. Visitors sure to discover vehicles they never knew existed. More than enough to marvel at or delight in. Many placed with historical information that broadens under-standing of the vehicle's time and place. Facility easy to step into. No stodgy atmosphere. Enjoy the story... More

If you like unusual cars, this place is a must-see. It has one of the most interesting collection of cars from around the world that I have ever seen. It is not a run of the mill museum. It is unique in that many of the cars were made by small companies that most of us have never heard of.

This is truly the most fascinating auto museum I have ever visited and I have been to many. The reason it is so captivating is the unique nature of the vehicles on display. There are many vehicles not often seen on US shores. Many from Czechoslovakia, Germany, France, and Italy. Some are one of a kind, others are very different... More

So many cars that i did not know existed! This was a great place to visit and learn about cars. The eastern block, the 3 wheeled, the military.

This is where you go to see cars you've never heard of and never seen. Quirky, off the wall, they have a big collection of 3-wheel cars and micro cars. They also have some fine examples from Tatra (Czechoslovakia). I had no idea some beautiful cars came out of there. Cars from France, Germany, Spain and elsewhere, there were no... More

This is an interesting place to spend a couple of hours (more if you are really into cars). The cars on display are all very unique and interesting. After you enter the museum you can pick up a clipboard that has a short scavenger hunt that makes the museum more interesting for those who don't have a huge interest in... More

I like the Lane Motor Museum because it is not your typical car museum with the same cars you usually see. They did not have a single Mustang or Camaro on display, don't get me wrong I like them also but already seen that. I found the section of micro or mini cars the most interesting. The price for the... More

We cannot say enough about Jeff Lane and the staff at The Lane Auto Museum. We were surprised they were open on an icy President's Day so we could visit. Once arriving there by taxi, we were unable to get a taxi to return for a pick up. Several members of the staff offered to drive us back to our... More

A great way to spend an hour or so. Older kids can grab a clipboard right when they walk in (on the wall to the right), and do a scavenger hunt with the cars. It makes it more interesting for them if they don't know much about cars. Lots of cool, tiny cars to look at. Even little kids like... More

I'm not even a big car fan and this place amazed me. So many cars and we were told it's only a portion of their full collection. Amazing, weird wonderful cars, with a focus on Europe. A play area for kids, as well. Definitely worth a stop!
