Attended a Multifamily Award show and it was such a beautiful and amazing building. It added so much more to this event that you could stroll around and see this beautiful pristine race cars, sports cars, etc., our event was catered by Scotts, the food was average banquet type. Would love to go back to this auto museum.

I am stuck between giving this a 4 or a 5 star rating. But I think that is because I have gone to the HUGE car show in San Francisco that is supported by all the major car manufacturers. I have to remember that this place is more of a smaller private collection type of a venue. The cars are... More

Exquisite cars. . .probably a must-see for Dad and the boys, but women will appreciate these beauties, too. Some seldom seen antique prototypes of vintage europeans that are absolutely gorgeous!

Out in the suburbs, but worth the diversion. Fastidiously maintained and obviously acquired by someone with very deep pockets, the cars are supreme examples of the art of the car and you are unlikely to see such a fine assemblage elsewhere.at the back of a sprawling mall, it is a little out of the way. Heard about it at the... More

I just went to my 20 year high school reunion here and it was wonderful. The cars are just beautiful and it is an all around nice venue.

One of the premier museums in the western US. There are cars on display that are contenders for Best of Show at Concorso Italiano & Pebble Beach Concours. The displays do change, the staff & docents can explain how this occurs. Architecture is world class. Environment is well suited to the quality of the displayed autos.

My first trip to Blackhawk Car Museum. Even on a Sat was not over crowded. If you like cars this is a "do not miss". Was surprised when telling friends about it, they did know of it. They do seem to keep a low profile maybe that's one of the reasons it so nice. They have tours ask when.

My cousin was keen to show me and my brother from Texas the great cars in this museum, but the week before we came they sold off half of them. Really. Half the museum was closed for "renovation." Still worth a visit but not what it was. Hoping to see more classics soon.

Went here with family to see the one of kind and vintage cars to celebrate Father's day. What a great collection of vintage and especially the one of a kind cars. Love all the restored gas pumps all over the building. They also had a lot of vintage juke boxes in a different section. The upper floor is under renovation... More

I love all those cars, can't afford them. So this is the best place to be. Surrounding in this beautiful and safe inner shopping center. A great place for a family of any age relax time. It is also great for any kind of party.
