There were amazing vehicles here. I had always wanted to see a Tucker, and they have a beautiful one. We were here for a special dinner event, and the place rocks!

If there are any auto buffs in the family and your in the area with some time to spare, check it out. The cars of yesterday have been beautifully restored and deserve a close up look, you won't be disappointed.

Im a car lover and this place was amazing...lots and lots of rare and specialty vehicles. Most look better than they did when they rolled off the assembly line! A couple of ultra rare ones as well that you can not see anywhere else.

Took a weekend getaway with hubby and found this museum on trip advisor. Really enjoyed walking through the cars and reading all the facts. Museum is very nice and clean. If your in the area it's definitely worth the stop!

Fantastic cars of yesteryear. A must see if you love cars. Restoration was fantastic. The cars glowed. Museum was clean and bright beyond belief. I had never seen a "Tucker" before. All I can say is WOW.

Some cars I have never seen. Pristine condition and well organized and run. Great lighting for pictures and excellent write ups in front of each display.
