“Stop and see the Tucker in Tupelo...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Lots of cars, but some pretty special ones had very little information. The audio was too simple. A brief car history- or a few facts would have helped a lot. It's worth a stop- if only to see the Tucker. Billooltewah

“Surpisingly enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

There is a large variety of cars including many very early models set out in chronological order. Just pressing a button on a speaker next to each gives you the history on each meticulously restored piece. I was surprised at the amount of rare vehicles which included not only an REO but a Tucker and many makes of short lived runs. For a low fee you can see models you have never seen and will never see elsewhere. It is a gorgeous collection from a time when elegance was important in craftmanship.

“Tupelo Hidden Secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

This is an awesome place for family entertainment and not break the bank. The entire family could spend a whole afternoon enjoying what Tupelo Automobile has to offer. This is something you would expect to find in a much larger city.

“Tupelo Auto Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

We take in an old car show whenever we can, but at the Tupelo Museum we saw many models and makes that we had never heard of before. Each car has a stand with a push-button recording that gives details. Staff is very friendly. We felt it was well worth the price of admission.
