When you walk in ask about the history of the building, and you may be surprised to learn its origins. There were exhibits for all ages, and staff very willing to speak with you about all of them. My young grandchildren were not impressed by the "old" cars but loved being able to go inside a Mack truck cab and... More

This place is really neat if you have any interest in any type of early automobiles. A lot of history in a small place. Stuff you won't see anywhere else

I wasn't expecting much that I haven't seen before, since I've experienced several antique car shows and several antique car museums in the past few years. Lots of things I haven't seen elsewhere. Lots of VERY old vehicles accompanied by plenty of text to read regarding the history of vehicles. My favorite display was that of antique children's pedal cars.... More

My 5 y.o. boy enjoys viewing, riding, or touching anything with an engine. This museum was a balanced blend of each of those criteria. For the $10 entry fee (he was free, but coupons are also available in local Visitor's Guidebooks), I felt the visit was worth the price. Two floors of varied automobiles, trucks, non & motorized devices, engines,... More

Small well maintained museum of beautiful historical cars from late 1920s through 1960s. Worth the small entrance fee of $10.

If you are into classic cars and history you have come to the right place. Great place and never crowded or any lines. Little hidden gem that more people should go see.

A great place for all ages. You can see things from the 1800's to the present. Bikes, motorcycles, carriages, all types of cars, trucks and a complete '50's diner. They have a revolving exhibit which right now is performance cars over the last century. A car or two from each decade. A lot of very rare vehicles. There is a... More
