Every time we go there something has changed. Well worth the price of admission. The new traveling exhibit was really cool and now they have added bike a collection and boat motors too.

Took my grandson to the Volo Auto Museum to satisfy his fascination with cars. While billed as a museum it is also a car sales outlet with numerous cars available for purchase with payment plans available. Also has a dining area as well as some vintage coin-operated kiddie rides. Admission is a bit pricey so plan on staying a few... More

Thank you for the 5 Star review! Great advice you have by suggesting to put aside a few hours for your visit. Most first time visitors spend 4 - 6 hours to see everything. Besides time, wear comfy shoes too! More

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

Thank you for the 3 star review and expressing you opinion. Everyone is entitled to there opinion and if you did not enjoy yourself, I respect that. However, comparing us to a "used car dealer" is a bit harsh. We do not hide the fact that we have cars for sale and our website details very well what you will... 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
