I took my grandchildren here several months after visiting the new car museum on I5. I was delighted when they told me they liked it even more than the beautiful new museum. The docent catered to my grandsons...answering all their questions and going out of his way to show them the vehicles they were most interested in. Wow, I was... More

Even if you aren't a car person, this place is amazeballs. The first building is self-tour and you can totally stick your head through the car windows to appreciate the interiors. The second building is a guided tour and it's chock full of awesome cars, on racks 3 cars high. Then the third building, also viewed via guided tour, is... More

We followed the directions from the website and arrived in a short time. We found that they were closed on Mondays, but a manager said he would show us around since we were there. I wish we could remember his name as he went out of his way to show us the vast collection. There are so many cars and... More

Truly spectacular and amazing that one family has collected so many vehicles and restored so many of them beautifully! Up close and personal, this was well worth the visit!

Found a groupon for this attraction and decided it sounded like a great adventure. We love cars, so were excited to see what they had to offer. We were not disappointed. The museum was not very busy when we got there, so we got to spend a lot of time talking to the volunteers who work there polishing and caring... More

This museum is superb and will be enjoyed by all who walk through the doors, car or motorcycle lovers or not. It is wonderfully designed, historically interesting and has many beautiful displays. They did not spare a dollar while arranging each section The lunch is darn good and the balcony overlooks the main floor while you eat. Worth a stop... More

My wife and I took our 6 year old and his school friend here on a Groupon deal. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We declined a guide and looked around the main buildings on our own, then took the guided tour of the out buildings (a guide is required for this portion). There are many, many , many... More

We started out with a car show..All Triumph Drive in and got to go into the museum which I understand is not always open to the public. Enormous amount of great cars! We finished the day with a dinner on property. A fine day indeed!

This is the place to go and spend all day (actually, several days) to try and see it all! It's an old military school converted into a museum with cars stuffed in some fun places...like the school showers! And once you've made it through the school building, it's on to several other buildings where the cars are stacked on several... More
