I got there early on the MLKJr holiday and the parking lot was empty so I was worried it would not be a good car museum. This was not a worry. The museum is modern, large and very, very clean with the cars in A1 condition. There are about 75 to 85 vehicles on display, one boat plus vehicle paraphernalia,... More

This is an incredible collection of Pre-1960 cars (cars through 1959, including 1959 Corvette) . Each car has a plaque to identify year, make, and model along with a description highlighting unique features. The cars are arranged in chronological order, so it is interesting to compare the advancements in automotive technology year-to-year. Depending on your level of interest in cars,... More

Old cars have been beautifully restored. The trip brought back so many memories from my childhood--cars my mom and dad drove, cars from many eras of time.

My company booked their conference space for a week in August while we were waiting for the construction to be completed on our new building. We were given free access to tour the building and see the cars. It's not that they aren't cool. Beautiful to look at and I appreciate the historical value. But it's just two rooms, so... More

Even if you're not a car buff this is worth a visit! The admission is fairly low. Beautifully restored cars from the 1890s through the 1950s. Well laid out displays including gas station stuff, old bicycles, pedal cars and even a Batmobile.
