“For the car and drag enthusiasts!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Great cars of many kinds. Not just those that Garlits owned and drove. Plenty to see for sure. Nostalgia for some, a new experience for others.

“All right”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

I guess if you are not a fan of drag racing it's not that interesting. Although there are a few old cars and tractors which are very nice

“Drag racing fan essential museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Awesome! That's the best word I can use to describe the Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing. This is a drag racing fan's holy grail. Swamp Rats all the way through, plus Shirley Muldowney and many other cars. You can basically follow the sport from its infancy thru modern 8000 hp nitro-burning machines. What a great place to visit.
