“Amazing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

My husband & I both enjoyed the clothes and the cars. We had fun guessing the makes and models of the vehicles before we read the signs.
My t-shirt is awsome! The paintings are something you just want to take home and the buildings architectural masterpieces.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We enjoyed the wearable art section - I've never seen anything like it before, and I enjoyed the stories that went with some of the items as well as the art itself. Very interesting work. The classic cars section was great, and there is a large variety of years & types on display. The back warehouse, which is an extra fee, is worth it if you're really into the car section, but it is not climate controlled (was FREEZING when we were there).
