Well laid out plan. Display setup in areas focuses on period of cars. Took about an hour to go through. One could get a guided tour which would take longer. Parking onsite is plentiful.

I have been here more than once. Whenever we have company from out of town we are always sure to bring them. My kids even like going multiple times. Be sure and get the headphones to be able to hear about each exhibit.

Lots of cars to see, going back to the late 1800s. They're in pristine condition, and the audio guide offers a lot of interesting information. I also loved the old gasoline dispensers. There are a number of vehicles which were buit by Burning Man attendees...More
