Great place to see a large collection of vintage classic cars for a very reasonable price. You could easily spend a few hours in this place. A must for all classic car lovers.

With 5 grandchildren under the age of 8, we made the trip to Dick's Garage. The staff was welcoming, and the peddle car displays were just a great touch to all the impressive cars of historical importance. We could pace the children with storying about "when we were young...ect" + a treat from the museum store. The adults enjoyed the... More

I took my younger nephew-a vintage car aficionado; this summer. It is so much nicer that they relocated to San Marcos; a closer location to central Texas and easy access. It is so nice to be greeted by a simple appealing fountain and welcoming staff with ample parking; as well as being told that photos are welcome (usually you have... More

I surprised my hubby with an anniversary getaway, and planned to do all the things he likes. This was our first stop. He loved this place. All the cars are so beautifully kept, and they are displayed well. For guests with handicaps, there are chairs located along the way to stop for a quick rest. He had a great time... More

Fantastic place to become absoorbed in the automotive history. Staff makes sure all vehicles start and run. You can see some of them outside in the parking lot on Cruise In Nights. Everyone is friendly and take the time to make sure all questions are answered. Great educational experience for all.

What an impressive museum. The number of cars on display is itself a real treat, but the cars are beautifully maintained and each car has information about the history of the car, the year it was made and other interesting information. Allow plenty of time at Dick's Classic Garage. It is well worth the time spent.

I have been to many of the Top auto museums both in America and in Europe. Dick's flies under the radar from publicity. However it is a very good Museum with an outstanding collection of vehicles especially from the 1930's. Dick's may have the best Tucker in the world and it is displayed very well. This is an undiscovered gem... More

I think the word "amazing" is overused. But this was amazing! Rows and rows of beautiful, shining classic cars in pristine condition. It was a joy to behold and I know nothing about classic cars...although after visiting here, I know more than I did! I would come again in a heartbeat.

Really nice place with a big variety of different kinds of cars, etc. It was neat to get to read about each one and their past. Only $10 pp...and they have teacher/student discounts!
