Started out with the surprise of a $10.00 fee per person. Overall not a bad place once you get over the entry fee. Small interesting collection that you can see in about a half hour.

The collection of cars is eclectic. Lots of vintage motorcycles, signs, bicycles and fun stuff to look at. Display is very tight so you can't move around the vehicles much. The workshop space is probably more interesting. They are actively working on restoring old cars...More

Any kid that would enjoy old cars...from real antiques to 1970's. The tour guide customizes the tour to fit the group. My kids at 5-6 year old, really liked old cars.
