We always try to plan a vacation around a theme , this year cars and architecture (I know they don't go together but they are both passions of my son). We did Car Craft Summer Nationals in Milwaukee and then stopped at Volvo on our way to Chicago Architecture. What a great place to spend some time and dream about... More

Its a used car lot and a flea market all rolled into one. It would have been better if every car did not have a for sale sign and we can finance you sign on them. I got the hint after the first building that everything was for sale. My other problem was if the sign on the old batmobile... More

Great deal, great, cars, and Great staff. They also have a really good Military museum. Always have to look every where as cars are all over the place. Worth the price of admission. Also have a large antiques mall as well.

I took 3 adult sons and two grandsons for a guys' outing. We spent about 4 hours. Everyone had a great time. Inexpensive and a great value.

I enjoyed seeing all the old cars, the cars from movies, and ones onced owned by stars. I got a kick out of the figures from the animated movies and shows. I even enjoyed the short animated show in the cafe. Its a place like no other. It is just like the website shows so pay attention. If your expecting... More

This is a great stop. I found this spot by chance from a magazine at our hotel. There are amazing cars here on display including a number that are available to purchase. If I thought I could have snuck one home without my wife knowing, I would have bought one for sure. I won't say which one hoping it will... More

I've been coming here since I was a kid, and it never ceases to amaze me how the Grams manage to always come up with new attractions. Whether you're a car guy like me or an antique collector like my wife, there is no better place to go.

My husband is looking for an older sports car and we've been visiting a number of places selling classic cars. He read up on the Volo Auto Museum and we went there expecting to see a section with display vehicles and another with cars for sale. We were surprised to see them displayed side-by-side, although they were clearly marked as... More

Thank you for the review. Yes we do share the same foot print for both the museum cars and cars for sale because we have found most people enjoy seeing both displays. Even though they share the same buildings, we do separate the displays within the buildings and mark the items clearly so people can easily spot what is for... More

What an assortment of good ol' cars and even some for sale! All were so well taken care of and it was fun to see so many cars from the movies we all love! Have never seen so many 'Do Not Touch' signs, but it is so very tempting - the paint jobs are really super!

Thanks for the review. We do not restore the car ourselves but we do look for the best, most desirable cars for display and sale, so we cannot take credit for the super paint jobs. Even with all the do not touch signs it is still very tempting. I heard one parent tell his kids all the paint on the... More

We loved all of this place. We weren't sure going out there, 3 kids all ages and gender, would it work. Pleasantly surprised all were happy. Spend close to 4 hours there.

Glad everyone in your family enjoyed. We currently have 3 generations of family working in the business of all genders so its really a melting pot of ideas from everyone in the family spanning from my 8 year old daughter to my father, who's, we'll just say, older. So we view it from many points of views. Thank you for... More
