I enjoyed my visit here. Left wifey at home so I could walk around at my leisure. It's a great display mainly of odd European marques. There is some really oddball cars there, including one offs and prototypes. A few motorbikes, scooters and bicycles are on display also. Do the basement tour if you get the chance as there are...

Only about 150 cars on upper deck (main floor). Good to go when they are doing tours downstairs for the extra $6.00 (main area was $12.) You will spend about an hour on main floor and see lots of off the wall cars. Do not go looking for high end super cars as there is only one Lamborghini, a few... More

I guess we expected to find more classic cars here than we did. There are many historically significant and some not so significant. There are many small planes hung from the ceilling, but they're hard to see. This is probably a good rainy day self-guided tour. This a NO TOUCH museum.

Having been to other auto museums in both the U.S. and Europe, I went to the Lane Motor Museum with a ho-hum attitude. However, once inside I realized how wrong I was! Not only do they have the largest collection of European vehicles in the U.S. but the collection also includes small airplanes, motorcycles, racing bicycles and a motor art... More

On the advice of other gearhead friends, I visited the Lane Motor Museum in Nashville, TN. What a great trip! Much time was invested in the restoration of a former iconic bakery structure into the current museum. The cars on display are eclectic and literally from around the world. From later model Japanese Domestic Models (J.D.M.) to vehicles where just... More

Even if your not into motor cars, this is a fascinating place. You will see automobiles you have just not seen before, you have never heard of some. You will enjoy it, the kids will be enthralled, as they specialize in small cars.

We stopped here on the way through Nashville. Not bad price to get in, unlike everything else in Nashville. A good variety of cars and things you don't typically see. Really nice kids area which you rarely see in car museums. No ropes around the cars so you can get up close to look at them. Glad we stopped by... More

Visit on a Saturday they have a basement tour to see all the cars in the collection. Unique and eclectic collection of cars. Ones you do not ever see on the road. But what I appreciated was all of the cars there are driven. They collect the cars and do not restore to a show car they get them running... More

I took the Motor-head, Brother-n-law to check out the ole bread factory and, WE were all shocked...! This is the craziest collection of off the wall wheels you will ever see!!!! There are a number of one of a kind and only survivors and, you will be blown away at what there is to witness!! You will require 2 hours... More
