I could have driven off in a load of these cars. Coming from England, these cars are just so different from what we are used to. the 50's cars are so big, colourful and ostentatious. We loved it.

While passing through Tupelo last week, we happened to see an ad for the Tupelo Auto Museum. We were delighted that we took the time to tour this fabulous collection of rare automobiles. The museum is located near the Civic Center and just a short walk from downtown. They allow no flash photos and the listening boxes at each vehicle... More

Yesterday we visited the Tupelo Automobile Museum with the Memphis Miata Club. Tupelo is about an hour and a half drive from Memphis on the freeway. The collection is vast! And there are audio boxes to help explain individual exhibits. Allow plenty of time. There are benches here and there to rest (for those of us who can't stand for... More

For $10, I enjoyed touring this car museum. It took about an hour. If you want, there are audio descriptions of each car. I just didn't care to invest that kind of time. They have some of the earliest models of automobiles from the 1800s. When I first pulled into the parking lot, my heart sank because I didn't see... More

The museum had many old and rare cars. Each vehicle has a "listening station" to hear facts about the auto. Admission is $10. Great for car guys/gals.

The museum is laid out in a large building and allows for a lot of space to view the cars. There is a nice collection of cars from antique to some modern. Great place for car enthusiasts

This is a must see, for history buffs. The staff is the best of the best. the gift store is has some very unique items, and again the people are just superb, can't say enough about them. After we where done a lady took us back inside to take our picture nex to a Elvis display--just great.

Nothing negative to say about this place. When we arrived we thought it was closed because the entrance is in what appears to be the rear side of the building and there were only 2 other visitors' cars there when we arrived. The car park is huge, and we found it really easy to find. There is so much history... More
