We were familiar with Hemming's but had no idea they were located in Bennington. There is a gas station (not very exciting ), a cool gift shop with a ton of license plates... More

Free and Fun! Had a nice conversation with Skip who watches over the museum and got some inside info on the small collection. They have a retail store in front with models and t-shirts. They also sell gas. What a concept. If you like old cars and even if you don't, stop in for a half an hour and say... More

We totally tripped across this little gem while going to the Bennington Museum across the street! This fun little time machine was fun to explore...a store full of fun car stuff (great selection of metal memorabilia and signs) but the best part was the old garage...yes, just like back in the '30's! Filled with the stable of Hemmings Cars from... More

Noticed a Model A car carrier on the way back to my hotel across the street. Had no idea it was here, until then. Gas station has a lot of car and truck models, signs, license plates, etc. But, the best part is the small museum with several vintage trucks and cars. Best part: it's free.

My brother has been subscribing to the Hemmings Motor News for 40 plus. Years so I just had to stop. Great place for photographers, collectors and avid car enthusiasts. The antique and speciality car museum is another don't miss opportunity. Staff really helpful and friendly.

Sonoco station in front of the Hemmings Motor News HQ. Filled with everything a car guy or gal could want. Don't forget to walk around back for a free tour of their classic car museum. Definitely worth a stop.

It is not just a filling station! There is a charming antique car museum which is free (!) and even has a docent to tell you what to look for. Each car has an explanation. Even learned that a Buick century got its name from tots ability to hit 100 mph! There is also a store related to the Hemmings... More

Come on, this is Hemmings, what's not to like?! This was a dream that was years in the making, my first trip to Hemmings Motor News. Being in New York for a photo assignment and having a few days of free time on my hands, it was a no-brainer to drive three hours north and visit Bennington and the famous... More

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
