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.

I visited the Blackhawk Museum shortly after it opened,and it was stunning. Rolling works of art, restored to the highest standards, carefully curated, and accompanied by beautiful displays. I visited again last weekend. The upper floor was closed for renovation, One wing was taken over by an admittedly nice toy train setup. The other displays looked like they'd been there... More

What a pleasant surprise to find this attraction. Though I am not much of an auto aficionado, I could easily have become one after seeing the vast array of fine European (primarily) autos including, Rolls Royces from the 30's, racing cars (aston martins, lotus) and rarely seen domestic autos including some unusual, limited editions and spec cars from Dodge.

Inside was amazing, especially the fantastic cars but for me, the model trains were the real stars, with a huge track all laid out, complete with several trains and buildings etc. My husband loved the cars but was disappointed that none of the engines were on display. Unfortunately,... More
