I like this museum because they really use the exhibits. In the summer they fly the planes, drive the cars and have an activity every weekend including workshops and activites for the kids. There are also lots of other attractions and activites in the area.

Incredible collection of cars, motorcycles and other modes of transportation. We'll worth the price of admission. Don't miss this museum.
