The vastness of the car collection really takes your breath away. You can really spend some serious time checking out the myriad of unbelievable automobiles. A treat I wasn't expecting was found upstairs in the western exhibit that was as detailed as anything I've ever seen. Very nice employee's topped off a quite nice visit.

Stunning and amazing cars can be found in this museum. A lot of car memorabilia too. I wish there were more cars on display when I was there. The guide mentioned that the number and selection of cars changes periodically. Go check it out.

My father in law was visiting and worked for Ford for 40 years. I had never been to the museum and took him to pass some time. Boy was I surprised at the quality and set up of the museum. He absolutely loved all the cars that he had experienced over the time in the business and those great European... More

This is an amazing place to visit if you are into collectible cars. A little out of the way but not impossible to get to. A little pricey in terms of admission. Not really its own permanent collection but a place private individuals show off their goods. Visit the adjacent one percenter mall (this is Blackhawk after all) for dining.

I haven't been this impressed with an automotive museum since my visit to Harrah's Museum in the 1970's! The amount of one of a kind concept cars, and limited production high end automobiles was breath taking, and well worth the trip to see them. I am very anxious to return during one of their first Sunday of the month car... More

We have been to the museum several times for private evening events (dinner downstairs with a guest speaker; cocktails before and having time to enjoy the museum). Being able to wander around and view the beautifully restored cars is a treat for everyone, you don't need to be a car buff to enjoy viewing the cars. In our most recent... More

We attended a birthday party here and it was a wonderful experience. The cars are beautiful and the ambience is truly amazing. The gallery was wonderful. Renting it out for parties is also amazing. Just a great overall experience

Most car museums I have visited display cars in realistic settings, i.e. street scenes, garages, drive ins, etc. This museum shows them off as the pieces of art they are. The cars in this collection are not your run of the mill autos, but exquisite, rarities displayed to show their beauty and style. The gallery upstairs is a wonderful history... More

Having visited this museum several years ago, I returned to show my wife a museum which I thought would wow her. Instead of two floors of a wide variety of historic cars displayed almost as works of art, I was confronted with one floor of cars (more modern foreign sports models than historic American) lined up in rows. The second... More

Always known as major car museum, it has been a mecca for the car fans....but today we discovered some changes for the worse. Not only are the cars being shown the same as the last visit, but there's one less floor of them. This is now another unrelated display. Nicely done as it was, the experience was a disappointment.
