This was one of the best museums I have ever visited. The collection of beautiful cars was so impressive by itself, but to add to the enjoyment was the collection of vintage bicycles, pedal cars, hood ornaments, and nostalgic music. Someone has painted murals representing a time line above the cars, so you have a historical perspective as well. I... More

For the person that said "dump" your significant other...shame on you! Lol.These cars are magnificent!! Their beauty can't be described, even on paper!! The history alone is fascinating, especially the Tucker, and almost anyone would enjoy looking at them, even grandkids. Six of us went, from 62 to 9 years old and every one of us loved it!!! I can't... More

This is a nice refreshing change from "hill country stuff". The car collection was very good and the facilities were well taken care of.

I was staying in Austin at the time when I visited here and I have to say it's a must-see for anyone driving through the San Marcos area. It's not a massive garage, but I'd estimate it houses around a hundred vehicles that range from the early 1920s through to the late 1960s. They're all beautifully kept and clearly loved,... More

On our way from San Antonio we had spotted this museum on the Internet. Just a short diversion from the I-35. Fantastic display of vehicles, mostly cars, from the early 19 hundreds up until the 60's. All displayed with lots of room to look inside each one, the whole place was beautifully presented and the cars nice and shiny. Most... More

So many beautifully restored cars. Presentation of cars is well done and museum is clean and full of so many smaller history auto memorabilia. Especially loved the Bat mobile! Would stop and visit again.

Several couples that travel together were visiting Bastrop recently. The gals get massages while the guys golf. The weather was rainy and cold so I suggested this to the guys. I think everyone figured this would be hoky, but they wound up going on and on about the cars that were there. They really enjoyed it.
