Cars for 1901 to 1959. There is the last Tucker off the line with only .5 miles on it. So neat to visit. Gave us a military discount too. Thank You!

They have a pretty fair number of classic cars....take a 'car guy' and it will take a couple hours to go through it

This Museum is on one floor. There are over 100 cars which are laid out in date order and they all look immaculate. They are displayed quite close together making it hard to photograph them. The whole place is wheelchair accessible and it has a gift shop. Well worth a visit.

This museum is very clean and tidy and features cars in beautiful condition from the 30s to 50s. These are the cars I remember from my youth so this experience was especially meaningful and enjoyable for me. And exploring San Marcos was great too.

If you love seeing the classic cars up close and personal, this is the place for you! Set in a wonderfully clean well lit environment - these babies look grande! We were able to book our meeting in the spacious conference room. It was large, clean and well kept with new media items available to use. A tour of the... More

We enjoyed 2.5 hours viewing the proprietor’s marvelous collection of fully-restored antique American cars – with a few jeeps, trucks, motorcycles, & bicycles thrown in as a bonus. Collection’s focus is North America 1905-1955, emphasis on quality not quantity. Both my wife and my 4-year-old son were enchanted. My 1-year-old primarily enjoyed “driving” a toy vehicle on which children may... More

We went on New Years weekend, kind of an escape from the busy Christmas season. Was me, my wife, and 4 kids. We only spent an hour there (we got there at 4, they close at 5). Was a little pricey for an hour, but that is really our fault, we could have totally spent several hours there. Was a... More
