This hidden gem gives a genuine look back to yesteryear's age of transportation and production. Great pieces on display and definitely worth the $5 donation to get in. Great for all ages and both men and women.

So much packed in here. Impressive cars, many pre 1930s, including one of the first electric cars. Only $5. Bargain. Make sure you find the working nickel jukebox in the back!

This antique car museum was well worth the time and the five dollars! Plan on about one hour or more if you want to take it all in.

I great visit for car enthusiasts but even if you are not it is a place to see. Majority of the cars are from before the 1930s and several example of vary rare cars. It will take around 1-2 hours to go through.

I was very disappointed with the way the cars are displayed, Most (95%) were roped off and side-by-side. You can't look inside these cars due to the rope barrier, and many looked like they just came out of the barn (dusty and dirty). I would...More

This car collection is one of the most unique that I have seen. There were so many cars manufactured by companies that I had never heard of from the early 1900's. I have been to larger car museums but the uniqueness here made for a...More

We love old car museums and search them out in our travels. This museum has 93 antique cars (all but 4 of which run) as well as lots of other antique memorabilia. It's a fun way to spend an hour or two looking at all...More

An impressive collection of cars. On the other side of the building is a museum about local farming and the history of surrounding counties.

Stopped here because I thought my husband and son would enjoy it. Wasn't sure what to expect but my husband was impressed. I don't know that much about antique cars but he said they have a pretty diverse collection and cars that you don't always...More
