This is a treasure in the center of Nebraska, plus you can visit Cabellas at the same time. Do not forget the arch. Really a nice museum displaying cars we would all love to own.

You're interested in classic cars or you wouldn't go here. It's well worth the trip and the price of admission. The cars are pristine and well preserved. Very high quality cars and finishes.

My brother and I took a trip to the museum. We didn’t expect so many old cars. They even had a British car that a lord owned back in the 1900s. Amazing. Worth the high entrance fee.

Takes a few hours to go through this one, longer if you really enjoy the history and want to read the information placards on each car. The cars are good quality, and each has an unusual amount of information that is on a placard. I...More

Not sure either, as I talked to one of the people who really know a lot about the cars, and this one through him a loop. What else might the Apperson Jackrabbit been called, or what other connection might there be?
