We had no idea where Hemmings was. We just saw it as we drove by and turned around to come back. The store has all kinds of vintage automobile memorabilia which was fun. But the best part was the 23 vehicles they have in the garage, most of which are beautifully restored. There were also many other treasures, including old... More

We made this stop as a great way to get out and stretch our legs and to gas up. While it's a small car museum it is a great small car museum, with a souvenir shop with all the fixin's. Very pleasant folks, more the happy to talk to anyone about anything. Some great looking panel trucks, old cadi's and... More

A pristine collection of old panel trucks, car memorabilia, sleds and bicycles and just about anything associated with vintage cars. Great assortment of old license plates and model cars for sale for the collector in the store up front. Friendly guide!

I have read Hemming's Motor News for years, so I was surprised to discover them here in Bennington VT. I had stopped for lunch at the local Brewpub, but discovered Hemmings was less than a mile away. It is an interesting facility, actually a working filling station with a store attached selling a large selection of Hemming merchandise as well... More

Anyone even barely into cars needs to check out the museum. Not that many cars but what they have has a bio. Any they're not roped off. Talk nice and they might even open a hood. Or two. We were there the day of a Cruise-In and they expected 200 cars. The gift shop only had one item I couldn't... More

I had a great time at Hemmings Motor News. The shop has a great selection of automobilia, ranging from books & diecasts to clothing and old time metal signs. The real gem though is their antique car collection, open to visitors for free during the summer. One of the highlights to me was their Brewster, a rare ride from the... More

None have been received. but we are getting bill for subscriptions. Will never fill out my name again on a similar venue. Too bad this sort of ruins the fun experience we had... More

We were vacationing in New England and while in Vermont visited Hemmings. We spent at least 2 hours here and my husband loved it. The gift shop has awesome car-related items and we purchased Christmas gifts here for the men on my list. This is a full service gas station and they have the black hose across the concrete that...

the actual filling station isn't much- just a lot of stuff for sale. Go behind this to the museum, which is free, and see all the restored vehicles. Quite a stunning display (and I'm not a guy and I'm not even a woman who cares much about cars). My husband probably got more out of it than I. I think... More

My husband and I were coming back from taking our son to college, and as we passed the Hemmings company, he said he always wanted to stop there. So we turned around and stopped in. Memories of the 1970's popped into our heads, back when he used to drool over every issue of the Hemmings Motor News, while dreaming of... More
