Visited this museum just after opening, and it was great to avoid the crowds. Really good museum with plenty of special cars to see. I really enjoyed the exhibition on the Thomas Flyer car from the 1908 New York to Paris race. Amazing story.

One of the best auto museums I have ever been to. It has plenty of old cars, street scenes, history, shops, etc.. It was very nice and it was the second time I visited. Well worth the couple of hours.

This is an amazing collection of cars, ranging from the early 1900’s to the ‘60’s. There are 4 show rooms and several “streets” that the cars are parked on. Admission is $12 & includes a movie about Mr Harrah, who started the collection. We went...More
