Without any doubt, this is a visit that anyone with any interest in the progression of the automobile would absolutely enjoy! There are enough vehicles under this roof to spend several hours looking over. Very easy to get to via Rt. 45, just moments off the exit. Super gift shop to also enjoy and take home some memories with you!... More

Stopped in Tupelo for one night while driving the Natchez Trace and was surprised to find a major automotive museum I had never heard of. And I have visited some of the best auto collections, both public and private, in the country. Excellent collection in Tupelo with some very rare older makes. Highly recommended.

This is not the largest car collection, but it is quite interesting. Some of the vehicles are quite rare! There is a small speaker at the front of each car. Press the button, and a recording tells about the vehicle. I do prefer to read such information, but for many people, the speaker would be a great way to learn... More

Excellent value for the money. The video at the beginning of the experience gave a real appreciation for the man behind the collection. The collection is so well organized chronologically. It is vast and well set up. We loved the audio boxes at each auto that allowed us to progress at our own pace and allowed us to be able... More

This is a nice place to stop for a stroll through time. Some beautifully restored automobiles, and tractors too. It was the first time I'd ever heard of or seen some of the makes/models. The staff was friendly and helpful. A must stop for auto buffs.

This is an incredibly large collection of cars from the first automobiles to today's Toyotas (built in Mississippi). Each car has a detailed audio which explains its history. If you enjoy cars or history, you will enjoy this museum.

The museum can be a short stopover or 1/2 day as we did. This is an excellent collection and they have a very nice audio for most (wish they did all) autos. It really gives you a good overview of the vehicle. Also a nice gift shop and overall very nice environment. The staff was very friendly.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon visit to this museum. The collection is very comprehensive. A must stop and see for all car enthusiasts. Staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. A BIG thank you to the kind woman who pointed us over to BBQ by Jim. We really enjoyed it.
