World's largest collection of Hudson, Essex, & Terraplane automobiles. Ranging from 1909 to 1956 the collection houses some of the finest examples of the autos produced by the Hudson Automobile Company. Both pristine restorations and pristinely preserved examples walk you through time while you reminisce about America's love affair with the automobile.

Very nice collection of cars. Inexpensive to go in. Nice way to spend a hour or so. Some really interesting information about man who collected the cars and some of the cars had interesting stories, too, including one that was recovered from the mountains.

If you love seeing cars, make this a stop. Worth the price of admission. They are all Hudson's but it is great to see the models from over the years.
