“Great...for the cars!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

If you're a car guy you can convince the wife to go here for the gardens so this place offers something for guys & gals.

There's not a lot of cars, but they had a nice collection of experimental and concept cars on display. We did walk the grounds which was a little boring, bug again that's not my thing or why we stopped here. It probably would be much nicer in the Spring when the flowers are in bloom.

I thought the fee to get in was a little steep, but I'm sure they have a lot of costs to maintain the place so I was okay with it.

“Amazing place, plenty to see and do.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

We decided to call here to pass some time driving from Falmouth to Kennebunkport and loved it. Motor museum was fascinating and the attendant friendly and knowledgeable. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained with a shuttle service for those who needed it or just wanted a ride back to their car. Pleny of things for children.

The grounds were fabulous. The exhibits engaging and entertaining. Such a peaceful venue where you can enjoy as much or as little as you want.

“What a surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We went here expecting to maybe pass an hour or so and found it such a peaceful place (a Friday 13 September) and interesting we stayed much longer. From classic cars, to a carousel ride, a tree house and gardens. I would recommend a visit.
