Lived in the area for 23 years and can't believe I never went to the Blackhawk Museum. So glad I finally did since it really is a fantastic auto museum. The cars are immaculate, and the variety is amazing. I highly recommend a visit here.

A very comprehensive if a bit eclectic collection in a Taj Mahal of buildings. Worth the drive and the time. Spend half day plus and look at all it has to offer. Try to get on a tour. This is a lot more than cars now.

The recent opening of a major exhibit on the West is a grand addition to the car museum. You can see all the cars plus this terrific production for a fair price. It has the biggest diorama I've ever seen. It is well over 60 feet long and 15-20 feet wide. It depicts scenes through history of the West from... More

Excellent collection including Rolls and Packards, which are my two favorites. Our experience was enhanced greatly by being led around by a somewhat eccentric but nevertheless very knowledgeable docent. Try to grab one.

Many, many things to see within the museum. There were not only cars, but a great museum of the West and Indian culture. Awesome!

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.
