We went here with a group of 19 thinking that our two train buffs would be the only ones really into this venue, but we were wrong. Everyone found something to explore - motorcycles, antique hearses, beautifully restored cars from bygone eras, baby carriages, funny...More

This was a great place for everyone. It had cars, trains, planes, motorcycles and bikes and more. We spent about two hours with not too much walking.

This was our second visit in under a year. It is great to see the “staples” still there with a constant rotation of new exhibits. This is an NPO so every visitor helps keep this great place alive. We visit from MT each year and...More

A nostalgic must see. Beautifully displayed exhibits of vintage cars, train engines, trolleys and motorcycles. Allow at least two hours.

Loved this place. So many things to see, the space inside is larger than it looks, was a bit off the road to find, but so glad we did. The matchbox car collection was awesome too. Want to come back with the kids.

Very large museum. I almost wish there was a suggested route, or an audio tour, however. It was difficult to see everything, though I tried. I most enjoyed the trains.

Jay was awesome! She made it worth the trip! The collection was amazing and we found it very interesting, and I'm not even close to being a "gear head"!

If you enjoy vintage cars, motorcycles, trains, bicycles, etc., this is the place for you! Anyone would enjoy all the vehicles of every sort they have on display.
