There were several cars we had never heard of before and many of the standard cars you would expect to see. We were told to walk around to the back and at the double doors there would be a guide to explain and answer any questions. When we got there no one was there. When the woman was asked at... More

Lots of cars, some collectibles. they used to have more arcade style games (the name used to be Antique Cars and Music). it has scaled back on the other exhibits and the gift shop isn't extensive, but still fun.

My husband wanted to stop here to see their cars while we were in town. They had about 75 to 80 cars that you could view. It was about $12.85 per adult to get in. You could take photos for your own personal use while you were there. Once we were finished looking around on the museum side, they told... More

Bigger than you think extra cars in the back. These are beautiful cars worth a look. Not cheap but good activity for a rainy day.

Went here with my family while on vacation in the area. A good collection with several unique items in the collection including two Beatles cars. The staff is very friendly and more "down-home" than "museum stuffy" Follow their advise of hang right and you will see everything in a loop.

The old T_Bird and Vette brought back a lot of childhood memories. Old friend Piero Rivolta donmated some of his classic Iso Rivolta cars. A lot more fun than... More

We love to see old cars. This is one of the oldest car museums in the country and has changed owners several times. There were some very unusual cars on display, a lot of prototypes, which we had not seen before along with cool older types that we were familiar with. It appears as though they have too many cars...

Lived here awhile before we visited this small, but very interesting museum. They even have one of the Beatles' cars, and some fun other cars like that. Definitely worth seeing - especially if you have a nostalgic bone in your body!

There are some great cars here, nice way to spend 30 mins. The lady at the desk seemed annoyed to have visitors and was less than friendly.
