Friend brought me here. I had no idea it existed but it's a top notch and well curated. Everything was so pristine and there were a lot of interesting cars. The host said they were going to expand the museum with new buildings as well so it can only get better. Highly recommended!

Worth a little drive in the country to see a first class collection of top quality customized Hot Rods and Classic Cruisers along with collectable motor head memorabilia from the past. Everything is top notch, no expense spared, restoration and customizing. If you can get the tour from Veit himself, it greatly adds to the experience because of the story... More

Quiet country setting and beautiful grounds. Super clean buildings and very nice cars, boats, etc. Unattended children will be sold to the circus. ie; all cars and items are hands off.

Lots of eye candy for the guys, beautifully restored old cars, 55 chevys, dozens of old restored gas pumps, some pedal cars, gas station signs and memorabilia. I loved the old glass vases, the glass shift knobs and the glass cigarette ash trays from the old luxury cars. There is a beautiful space for picnics, so take your Cub Scout... More

This museum is so clean and welcoming. The cars are perfect and memorabilia is so special. I especially loved the grounds with the pond and trees so pretty.

This place is a great place to see some classic cars that are completely restored and many other collections of things from the past. Signs and fuel pumps from our past are displayed all around this place. The garage area is next to none. It was a great couple of hours of brousing.

We had never heard of this museum until our car club planned a visit as a group outing. It is off the beaten path but worth the drive. They are currently starting a significant expansion. Not only do they have Ford and Chevy vehicles from the 30 to the 50's but a huge collection of gas pumps, signs and other... More

Visited yesterday, I thoroughly enjoyed it! So many wonderful things to see, I will definitely go back again. There's just too much to take in with just one visit. The old gas pumps are awesome! But then, so are the cars. It's a must see, if you are any kind of a car nut.

We visited the Veit museum while on a tour with Street Rodder Magazine on June 15. My wife and I have been car enthusiasts for about 50 years and have visited many of the highly touted museums in the USA and Europe and have to say that this is probably one of the best we have ever been in.
