Our MN Airstream group held our first rally of the year in Worthington this past spring and I was told over and over that we had to tour Marv Spomer's Museum and we did. First I have to say that Marv and his wife are wonderful hosts. Marv does the tour and intimately knows the story behind every car and... More

This place was incredible! There was so much car history packed in to this building and Marv couldn't have been a more personable host. We caught him on his way out but he took the time to give us a tour.

We were traveling through the area and noticed on TripAdvisor about Spomer Classics and Museum. We called Marv and he even stayed open later so we could see these treasurers. His wife Jeanine also was there and greeted us. Such a delightful couple. But the museum has so much to offer!!! It is a "MUST SEE" !! Beautiful classics and... More

then this is the place for you. All sorts of dealership signs, collectibles, clocks, displays, etc... He specializes in neon signs and has so many he only turns them on for a short time or else the place gets too hot. Owner gave us the tour and told us the stories behind the signs and the cars in the collection.

If you like cars, If you like history from the 20's-80's. If you think neon signs are pretty and neat, than this place is for you. Marv Spomer is a very knowledgeable historian on the automotive history. He has a collection that he has worked on his whole life and it shows. He is very proud of his stuff and... More

Beautiful classic cars, especially Corvette and Oldsmobiles are kept in a well lit and clean environment. His large collection of working porcelain dealer signs is the largest you will ever see. They are all in working order and when he turns on the electric switch they all are in working order.

This was the most amazing collection of automotive memorabilia amassed in one location I have ever witnessed. It was well worth the $10 entry. They only show to groups or by appointment so be sure to call them first to insure they will be there. There are several rare cars on display along with hundreds of neon and porcelain signs,...

Click, click, click, click, etc. With each click, owner/collector Marv Spomer opened an electrical circuit that brought a dark room into light that would make Las Vegas envious. The lighted signs are perhaps the most unbelievable collection of neon and porcelain automotive signage that have ever been gathered in one place. Suitably, that happens to be in a former automotive... More
