This museum is incredible. You can't possibly see it all in one visit even if you have the time, you will experience overload. If you can't find something that interests you here, then you're not interested in anything. And a great bargain to boot.

This museum is amazing. It has Everything that you can imagine...a great historical reminder of transportation in the past. I didn't really think I'd like it that much, but I found it intriguing and amazing. Thank-you Cole Family for sharing!
