This is our second visit to the REVS and if I could give it 10 stars I would. Well worth the visit and when you do visit be sure to take one of the tours. Our docent led tour was about 2.5 hours and did not cover every one of the 150+ cars in the collection. However you have the opportunity to spend as much time as you want to wander through the exhibits to see the cars not covered during the tour. We recommend the morning tour so you have plenty of time to tour the exhibits afterwards at your own pace. The docent was very knowledgeable and answered all questions. A true gem in Naples. The exhibits are outstanding!

Our docents and volunteers are very passionate about vehicles in the collection and we are so glad to hear it shows.

What a wonderful museum of very significant cars from late 1800's to modern vehicles. I really enjoyed the wide variety, quality of the vehicles and the knowledge and time that the volunteers spent with me. If you are into Porsche you will go crazy. But, like me, even if you are not but love cars, you will really enjoy it! I My favorite was a spectacular 1937 Delahaye Special Roadster which is an art deco work of fine art! Also, make sure to download the custom app if you go...it has the story and details of every car in their collection, along with close ups of the engine, interior and video of it driving.

My husband and his friend had 11 a.m. reservations to see the exhibits. They were allowed in as soon as they arrived and spent 5.5 hours! They would have stayed longer but the place closes at 4 p.m. The exhibits were extremely impressive but even more so were the knowledgeable volunteers who were more than happy and prepared to talk about each and every car. On display are cars from the late 1800’s to present. The place is immaculate whether it be the display showrooms or the garage where restoration is done. Anyone who has any interest in cars at all should allow a whole day to learn everything about these amazing machines. 99% of these cars are used on the road or in races. It is suggested to go during the warmer months, it is less crowded so more attention is given to each visitor. The best $20 you will ever spend!

What a fabulous tribute to the Miles Collier Collections, represented by the time spent by your husband and friend, along with your kind words describing their visit! We certainly appreciate this high honor in their eyes! We are so pleased that they enjoyed the historical automotive journey exhibited at Revs Institute, with some of the rarest cars ever built. We hope they will visit us again soon, and perhaps bring you along!

Amazing what money can buy. More than 100 vintage classic automobiles. Each in excellent to pristine condition. Displayed in a beautiful building that feels much like a mortuary. Whispering seems the appropriate way to talk. Well informed pleasant and friendly men are more than willing to explain the history or features of every automobile. Porsches, BMWs, Duesenberg‘s, Bentleys, and race cars galore fill the building. An original tricycle and bicycle also are on display. Guarantee that that bicycle seat would not be on my bike for a long period Car lover, or not, this exhibit is of value and interest. Walking around a half billion dollars, at a minimum, in metal is an experience in itself.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts regarding your recent visit to Revs! We're so glad that you enjoyed the nostalgic stories shared by our talented volunteers. The dazzling display of the vehicles in the Miles Collier Collections hopefully made up for our cool and subdued atmosphere, which optimally helps with the preservation of the vehicles. I agree that the bicycle seat would indeed be big challenge nowadays! Pleased to hear that your time at Revs was amazing.

My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Revs. Bear in mind you have to reserve in advance, which works out nicely as you are never overwhelmed by too many people trying to get to too few cars. Unlike almost all of the MANY other car museums we have been to, these cars have some space between them, and no stancions keeping you away. They trust you not to touch the vehicles or rub your hand on the seats. Quite a varied collection from the very early decades of motoring up to very recent models. A great collection of Porsches, many other Euro and domestic US marques are represented. We were there about 2 and 1/2 hours, but you could easily spend 3 to 4 hours if you have the time. They have no snack bar but you can leave and come back on your daily ticket.

Giving this a 5 because of excellent presentation, display and highly knowledgeable staff who can literally talk to you for 40 minutes on the finer points of driving, engines, suspension, etc. Really isn't anything they've missed in terms of their chosen focus. My only but for is that there's a lot of space and dollars invested in race cars from the 60s-90s (Porschephiles go see), I'm more interested in automotive history and daily use thereof, so some of this was lost on me. If I do racers, it's more the early stuff, a la Simeone collection. But still they have both Le Monstre and the 'stock' Caddy from LeMans, and many other interesting daily things besides - it is a well spent visit / you will not regret having been.

The racing nostalgia combined with the timeless beauty and history of all of the vehicles in the Miles Collier Collections often prove to be the perfect blend for visitors like you, who recognize the rarity of this world-class collection. Glad to hear you especially enjoyed the 1950 Cadillac Series 61 Le Mans "Le Monstre" and "Petite Pataud".

We had a marvelous tour with Fernando. He was a wealth of fun and interesting tidbits about both the museum itself and especially the amazing cars. I wish we could have had twice as much time with him as I feel it was just the tip of the iceberg of his vast knowledge and commitment to the museum. A must see if you are in the area, but give yourself plenty of time to enjoy it. Again, hats off to Fernando.

6 of us booked a $25 docent tour (3 couples) and were fortunate to have Mark G as our guide. He’s a wealth of knowledge and a true car lover. So much passion for the beauty of the cars. Up close, interesting stories, extensive collection Mr Miles Collier has. Very nice museum. Limit if 10 per tour - you never feel crowded or rushed. Your pass is for all day so after the 2+ hr tour we went to lunch, then back to wander around some more. All the volunteer guides are so friendly, knowledgeable and willing to share info.

Revs Institute has a reputation for being one of the finest car collections around and after waiting so long for it to reopen, didn't disappoint. All of the vehicles are displayed in a manner that celebrates their artistic qualities, and the staff is refreshingly engaging without being annoying. This will become one of my frequent stops whenever I'm in the area.

Before visiting REVS, I had no idea it even existed. After hearing about it, we attended a tour with Jim Wood as our tour guide. We came away with two thoughts, Jim Wood is so knowledgeable and has a passion for the museum, the founding family, and the fantastic automobiles in the collection. I’m seventy-six years old, and this experience was one of the highlights of my life. The vehicles and displays are well done, with information about the display/vehicle posted eloquently at each one. Being from the midwest and wintering in Ft. Myers, I will certainly pass on the word about this fantastic facility and the exquisite automobile collection to family, friends and strangers. Thanks “Woody” for your enthusiasm, passion, and love for volunteering at the REVS and sharing your passion and expertise with us as well as all who you have entertained. Job extremely well done.
