Decided to take a side trip from Columbus, MS to Tupelo while here for a wedding. I had heard the Auto Museum was good, and it did not disappoint. The cars were nicely lined up in chronological order and most had a device with pre-recorded audio that told you more about it. A note to the museum: a few of... More

I'm a member at his place. It still amazes me after all these years. My son and I were at the Prince's Collection in Monaco a few weeks ago. This place is every bit as good and it is BETTER if you throw out all the Formula One stuff in Monaco. It will shock you if you judge it by... More

Tupelo has been the spot as a layover when traveling between the Midwest and the East Coast to visit family. On the most recent trip we saw a billboard for the museum and decided to visit on the way back home. What a great museum! The "boys" enjoyed the cars and I was intrigued by the story of the man...

You have got to go here. This extra large museum has great viewing for men, women and children. From the first days of the automobile to current models, they have them all. I liked the unusual models most of all.

If you are into cars, this is one you need to visit. Not much else to do in Tupelo (except Elvis Birthplace), but this museum is really FIRST CLASS. Some very rare autos here that are hard to see elsewhere. They have one of the original Tuckers (brand new, never driven). They also have a couple of Cords and Duesenbergs.... More

The time line of cars is really cool. They have a tucker which makes it worth the money to go. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is some of the restoration of cars is very poor. Bad paint jobs wrong bolts in places oil dripping on the floor. But if you love cars this is a great... More

Im not much of a gear head or a car enthusiast but this place was well worth the $10 i paid for admission. I am a slight history buff so i do enjoy learning about how things began and evolved into what we have today. Enjoyed!

My husband and I love to look at vintage cars. We stopped at this museum and virtually had it all to ourselves. The cars themselves are in one huge room and are arranged chronologically for the most part. There were small speakers set up so that you could hear information about them, too. It was really enjoyable. Since it was... More
