Lots of really neat old cars to see. It's very clean, and doesn't smell like some of the classic car collection show rooms do.

Excellent collection of noteworthy cars from vintage to 1959. No rubbish or common American cars in this collection. Well worth a visit.

Lots of parking right out front. I have been back 4 or 5 times with family and during breaks in business meetings held in their meeting room. Great collection of restored gas pumps and motors on engine stands to show details.

We visited this museum during our short stay in San Marcos, and really loved it! They have beautiful collection of classic cars, with detailed description to each one. My husband and 8yrs old daughter really enjoyed it. We spent an hour there.
