This auto museum is full of many wonderful cars from the Backers Potato Chip founders personal collection. It was a walk through time via the evolution of the automobile. The "bio's" of each vehicle gave you insight to so much history. Even the college aged kids with us, who (hesitantly) went with us, enjoyed the Saturday afternoon. I only wish... More

We have been to many, many auto museums on our travels, some of which have made us weep at the way the automobiles have been stored and displayed. This was a pleasant surprise. The scope of the collection is excellent, and every vehicle is jacked and cared for in a climate controlled setting. They look like they could take to... More

Looking for things to do in Fulton, I found this auto museum on line and it was worth it. It was a totally self guided tour and the only thing that would have made it better was a bit of a talk with a guide, but as a family owned business I am sure it is not feasible. These cars... More

In other reviews, "surprise" is the common word. I have often wondered about this car museum when I see the roadside signs. In fact, it was a surprise. This is a personal collection of vintage cars ranging from the early 1900s to classic Mustangs, Continentals and big-finned Caddies. This is a modest size collection of some exquisite, un-restored cars. Backgrounds... More

I was just on my way to Jefferson City and noticed it off of the highway. I had some time, so I stopped not expecting a lot, but was pleasantly surprised. Small, but well done, and some wonderful cars on display. Very worth the stop and it looks like it can accommodate bigger groups also.

Some very beautiful cars and vehicles from yester year. You can get close to them and the information on each helps young ones to better understand the cars from years gone by

Although we live close enough, we had never been here. Pleasantly surprised at how many cars there were, how they are displayed and loved the backdrops of different eras. The person working was very nice and helpful, and seemed to know a lot about cars herself. We enjoyed talking to her, and we're planning on a return visit as they... More

Cars are nicely displayed they aren't behind velvet ropes so you can walk around most of them. Also there are many old signs etc. most interesting is the bios of the different men who built the various cars.

We totally enjoyed our visit. I loved the historic sets and the black and white backdrops. Lots of information and some really unusual cars. I felt like we had stepped back in time for 90 minutes, a hidden gem. The staff was very friendly and restrooms spotless. This is a great place for anyone who loves cars, young and old... More
