The history lesson is short and sweet - it's an impressive collection of photos and cars. Very enjoyable

The museum is OK, but the Stanley hotel is a must visit. The views from there is breath taking. Go early in the day before the afternoon storm

If you are there it's worth a look. Very interesting display of the original Stanley Steemer. The hotel was the inspiration for Stephen King's book "The Shining". The hotel in the movie was actually in Oregon. There are ghost tours at the Stanley hotel as it is said to be haunted.

It is really just one car. The hotel is swamped with tourists who are just visiting and they charged $10 for parking. The bar was pretty with a stamped copper ceiling and a unique railing but the service was awful. It might be worth it in the off season, though.

The Stanley Steam Car Museum is not actually a museum. You can go on a tour of The Stanley Hotel and see a Stanley Steamer in the front lobby and the guides are very knowledgeable in the history of F. O. Stanley, the building of The Stanley Hotel, events held at the hotel and, of course, the tour would not... More

My son an I were impressed with the history on the Stanley Steamer. We had an excellent and knowledgeable guide that made the tour interesting. Would recommend to anyone interested in the history and workings of the steam automobile.

What a building! Back on Long Island, there are many examples from this time period on the North Shore. Anyone who loves traditional hardwood designs and ornate moldings will be in heaven. Oh, the steam car was very interesting to my husband...

We took a tour with Jeremy. It was just the two of us and him. It was fabulous, very informative...and we had some "local" visitors give us a little spook.

We took the historic tour of the hotel. There was a lot of history on he family that built the hotel and some background information but we did not really see much that we could not have seen on our own. That said, the hotel itself was beautiful and some of the artifacts inside (especially the Stanley Steamer) were very... More
