“Amazing piece of history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Extraordinarily restored automobiles! On a scale between 1-10, the cars get a 10 for restoration (10 is the best score). I never knew that the Stanley brothers were so innovative. A definite must see on a drive through Kingfield. A hidden gem indeed! $4 covers a lot of history.

“Nice, small museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

This museum shows the involvement of the Stanley bros in the steam engine, both in Maine and Colorado. Nicely done, but small, plan on investing an hour or less. The small staff was very helpful when we were there.
