Car museums interest me. This one also puzzles me. When is it open? I enjoyed it several years ago. Autos are displayed with period gas pumps and signs, street lights, and the like. But the problem is finding it open. While it has sometimes been open in the "off season" from October to May, I suspect that was unusual, that... More

We basically visited because we got caught in a rain storm and needed some where to dry off! The price of admission was cheap. They do have several different cars to see but I definitely had more fun going to the Star Cars Museum in Gatlinburg. But I wouldn't rate them poor because of that.

I am not a big car lover, but I was very impressed with this museum. It was a reminder of muscle cars from another era, (meaning cheap gas and speed)! It is amazing to compare the quality and style of these cars to what we find on the road today.

This is a great place to step back in time as far as the auto industry goes. Plenty of classic cars and entertainment. Gives one a sense of what can be done with patience, money, and talent when restoring a classic car.

Its just wall to wall things to do and see for all ages. Take the kids. take your photo in any expensive car. I took mine with the $$$$ Lamborghini. Try parking near&,behind the shops where they have free parking.

My husband and my 12 year old absolutely loved this place. Kept them both entertained for over an hour. Lots of pictures were taken. I am not a big car enthusiast, but I must admit, it was nice to walk around and look at all the old cars and the history behind them. Nice, quiet environment. Not crowded at all.... More

I love all of the old cars in the place. This is one of the best places in Tn to see a lot of old cars.
