Great cars

Good exhibition of world cars, pity the exhibit has been reduced from our last visit. The ground floor is taken up with other items which were other classic cars

The Blackhawk Museum has always been incredible with their fabulous automobile collection but now with their addition of a permanent exhibit of The Spirit of the Old West with an amazing collection of Indian culture and the western expansion of settlers...this museum is world class! Not to be missed.

Whenever we host visitors, we take then to the Blackhawk Museum. It is a unique venue and collection. There is a good selection of restaurants in the center, a movie theater and we love the Wheelchair Foundation exhibit next door.

This place is a true gem for car buffs. Especially if you like Ferrari! They have some extremely rare cars that are on display for your pleasure. It is a very good value and a great way to kill an hour or two. They seem to rotate cars in and out so it is no telling just what you will... More

The Blackhawk Auto Museum is well maintained with some of the best classic cars in the world. The atmosphere is calm and not crowded. It is a place that an enthusiast or a novice can enjoy automobile history and see the beauty of the industry.

This is a first class automotive museum that rivals Harrahs. It is in an upscale suburban shopping area with excellent restaurants.

Beautiful, well maintained cars in a gracious setting. Information posted for each car. New cars are continually added to the collection. The site is often used for fund raisers. There is a collection of old jute boxes downstairs, fun to see.
