This is a small but nice museum in Depot Town. It is located in an old dealership. There are 3 rooms. The room you enter the museum in has a variety of cars including a Delorean and a race car which you can sit in for a photo. The room on the right is all Corvairs and the room on the left has Hudson and Essex automobiles. Museum is small but nice and worth a visit if you are in the area.

The cars here were just incredible. Had no idea this place is such a gem.
Was at a fundraiser here this afternoon and what an amazing venue. The automobiles they had were just stunning and I had a great time taking pictures.
The staff working that evening were so friendly and fun.
I work with seniors and plan on taking them here for a trip. I think they’d really enjoy it and I definitely want to come back!

This one is small, but it's good with quite a few cars even in this small space. There are about 20-25 nice cars in mostly good condition and the bulk of them are Hudson. I wouldn't compare this place to the Gilmour Car Museum in Hickory Corner, but if you're not going to far out of your way, it's worth a stop in for the cars if you're interested in this sort of thing. If not then skip it and hang around Depot Town for some fine food and beverages. The entry fee is only five dollars, which is the same as the Firehouse Museum two blocks away on the same road, if that appeals to you more. Enjoy!

I am so glad that we decided to walk into this museum. The cars were amazing and the people running the museum were so friendly. It is an absolute hidden gem! You get right up close and personal with almost every car. The pictures I posted were less than a third of the cars here, but they’re all beautiful!

The museum began as a way of preserving the Founder;s father's Hudson dealership and has grown into a very intersetsing collection of automotive history. Many people today are totally unaware of the existence much less the history of the Hudon car company. I have owned Hudsons and while they were nit the glamour girls of the car industry they were solid reliable vehicles.

Inside what was formerly the longest operating Hudson Motor Car dealership, you will find a delightful museum chronicling the history of Hudsons as well as automotive products of the Willow Run Assembly Plant,including Kaiser,Frazer and the Chevrolet Corvair

This place doesn't look like much from the outside.

A lot of good stuff once you walk in the door.

Interesting cars, Corvairs, and others. Really surprisingly good.

Artifacts and signage make it really great.

Inexpensive admission too.

In this somewhat "hidden" structure across the street from all the restaurants and stores in Depot Town, is an almost 90 year old automobile dealership, know to sell vehicles manufactured by Hudson, DeSoto and Kaiser-Frazer. The museum is worth about 45 minutes to an hour, but is a "must see" for any auto buff. The historic vehicles on display are really in great condition, and include a Chevrolet Corvair.

This museum doesn't look like much on the outside, but it holds a very nice collection of Hudson cars, DeSotos, Corvairs, and other "orphan" models, all very well restored. It won't take more than an hour to tour this small museum, but it's well worth the stop.

An interesting and friendly museum. The star exhibit is the fabulous Hudson Hornet. It has some unusual cars and memorabilia and very friendly informative staff
