The gardens are nice with to walk through. It is pretty. There are places to sit, a waterfall to visit, and benches scattered around. We went to see the flowers and the movie costume exhibit which was great. We did not do the car exhibit because we were short on time and it was broiling hot. The gift shop has... More

The vintage prestine car collection is second to none. Throw in the Hollywood costume collection and beautiful garden surroundings and what you get is a great visit for adults and children alike.

What an amazing collection of cars! Only wish we could drive them. Well kept, in splendid condition. Very informative collection. After you leave this exhibit wander the grounds. Beautifully kept 100 acres. Excellent exhibit on clothes worn in different films. A great carousel to ride as well. Do watch out for poison ivy!

The exhibit featured gowns, pirate-wear, and suits from various movies. Seeing them up close allowed me to appreciate all the details that went into them. Also, it also showed how large the actors were. The guides were fantastic! They had lots of information about the historic background on the outfits.

We took our teenage kids and our elderly parents for the day. kids and adults loved the automobile museum. kids really liked the special exhibit on movie costumes. Lovely gardens, great carousel ride and nice cafe. We liked it so much we became members of the museum and planning for another visit next year.

Went to Heratige in Sandwich this past weekend and was pleasantly surprised. We are always looking for places to take my grandson and we had pretty much exhausted everything in the area. We took my son there when he was small and all I remember was the carousel. I was a little hesitant because I thought that staff would be... More

We enjoyed a short visit to this stunning garden. Our main purpose for visiting was the Hollywood costume exibition. Amazing costumes from some of my favorit movies that you were able to see up close. Afterwords we strolled the garden wich was beautifull and worth the entry price itself.

We've visited this location before when visiting the Cape. This visit was enjoyable as well except for one incident. This incident ruined our visit. Let me be specific: It was a rainy day and one of the transport vehicles was passing us so we stopped it and ask the young driver if she would take us up the hill to... More
