Dump your significant other at one of the outlet malls and head over to Dick's Garage for a couple of hours. It's a nice car museum. Very clean. Well lighted. Cars are not crowded together, most cars can be viewed up close from the front and the sides. Good description of each car clearly posted. Easily kill a couple of... More

It brings back a lot of memories, seeing the cars we dated in, or drove when we were teens; and there are lots of older classics, Auburns, Cords, Dusenbergs. It's well worth the time to walk through the collection.

Went on a weekend just to see the Tucker and it was worth it! The museum has very friendly staff and is set up nicely with an open flow direction. Parking is free and would suggest an hour to an hour and a half to explore

loved this place! My husband and I are English and now live in Spain but we have both driven imported American vehicles for over 20 years so this museum was an absolute must visit for us and we weren't disappointed. The cars are restored to an incredibly high quality and are in mint condition. Well worth a visit for any... More

My wife and I stopped by Dick's Classic Car Garage Car Museum on October 16, 2014 while returning home from a trip to Fredericksburg, Texas. The experience was enjoyable from the beginning due to Angelica, the Cashier and Guide. She provided information about the museum and took pictures of us with the cars which were in excellent condition. We are... More

Found this place while just driving around. Found out that on the 3rd Saturday (most months), after 5:00pm they will have Free Entertainment, Free admission and an Additonal Car show in the parking lot. Inside is a beautiful and massive car collection. What a way to spend some time. Plus seeing some unusually cars I have not seen before or... More

One steps in to a classic Model T, and after a very fair fare, start with an early 1900's Stanley Steamer and electric cars. If only the early electric car engineers could see the Tesla today! The cars range from the early 1900's to the late 1950's and early 60's and each car has a sign that tells you about... More
