First time visitor and wasn't disappointed. The museum contains a wonderful collection of pre-World War I automobiles, what is known as the "Brass Era." Well displayed and including a number of collateral historical items. Friendly staff! Highly recommended!!

If you like old, and I mean, REALLY OLD cars, you will love this place. Great 90 minute break from hiking or for a rainy day activity. Amazing museum for such a low key area.

What a great place. The exhibition of antique car, motorcycles and clothing was super. The staff amazing with their knowledge of the area. From the outside I had to wonder just exactly what I would find inside, but it was a delightful surprise.
