We came to Bennington solely for the cruise-in held on a Thursday night at Hemmings in early June. It did not disappoint. Run by professional car people for decades. The gas station is a real treat with many items for sale inside. The museum is very interesting and reminded us a bit of Antique Archeology in Iowa (American Pickers). The... More

We were in Bennington for the day and stumbled on a brochure for Hemming's so decided to walk over and check it out -what a great fine! We were familiar with Hemming's but had no idea they were located in Bennington. There is a gas station (not very exciting ), a cool gift shop with a ton of license plates... More

Free and Fun! Had a nice conversation with Skip who watches over the museum and got some inside info on the small collection. They have a retail store in front with models and t-shirts. They also sell gas. What a concept. If you like old cars and even if you don't, stop in for a half an hour and say... More

We totally tripped across this little gem while going to the Bennington Museum across the street! This fun little time machine was fun to explore...a store full of fun car stuff (great selection of metal memorabilia and signs) but the best part was the old garage...yes, just like back in the '30's! Filled with the stable of Hemmings Cars from... More

Noticed a Model A car carrier on the way back to my hotel across the street. Had no idea it was here, until then. Gas station has a lot of car and truck models, signs, license plates, etc. But, the best part is the small museum with several vintage trucks and cars. Best part: it's free.
