This is not a museum of artifacts and displays like The Henry Ford across the parking lot. We almost didn't go in when we were told that but I am glad we did. My son is more about the visual, admiring displays than about the "boring" reading, aren't all teenagers? But he was actually lagging behind me looking and reading... More

It is a decent place for the historical value, Just not much to see. Good displays. Just as little expensive.

Is ok. Nothing amazing. And a little pricy at 10 bucks for something that small. But it was ok. Had a decent amount for information to read. Not alot cars.

At $10 a adult I had expectations likely beyond what I received they were up front before we paid there were very few cars included and to be fair there were more than expected. We had to enter via the Toilet corridor as there was a conference on and we were the only people there. It has a lot of... More

The museum didn't do much for me. Your better off going to The Henry Ford across the parking lot. If your interested in the people from Automotive history you might like it.

Everything you ever needed to see or wanted to know about the automobile industry and all of the famous things and special cars and accomplishments. This is a great space for private events. The museum is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. But well worth it even for the parking fee

If you are into cars and who made the industry happen and who was behind the fantastic inventiveness of the industry this place is for you. This place is about the people force behind the vehicles we grew up with and loved. This is unique and unlike most auto museums which feature only cars. This place is about the people... More

The Automotive Hall of Fame honors the many people who have made contributions in various forms to the auto industry since it's inception. Unless you work in the automotive industry or have a love of autos, many of the names will be unfamiliar to the average person, something that wasn't a problem for myself. A who's who are honored, pioneers,... More
