What a wonderful hidden gem in the midst of Galax. Owners were absolutely awesome - what a privilege to see a car collection built up over a lifetime. We were even able to trade a bit of coolant for some ice cream! Do not visit Galax without stopping by to see this treasure.

Must see for old car buffs!
Jun 2017 • Couples
We didn't stay at the RV park - just visited the car museum. We've wanted to go many times but they're only open on weekends. But during this last visit to Galax we were finally able to make it. Definitely worth the visit. It's. It as polished as other car museums. But the cars are great to see. After the entrance area with its own collection of memorabilia you pay $4 (YES, only $4) to see the museum. There's maybe 20 cars in there. A Stanley Steamer. And old electric car. Several others from early 1900s up to (I think) a 71 Chevelle. He has the history of the cars listed there. Really nice. But THEN he'll take you in the back to see "the rest of the cars". It's more like a workshop and storage but there's another 50 cars back the in various states of repair. REALLY cool. Some are all restored and could be displayed if he had room in the museum. Others need work. It are still really interesting to see. All kinds. Including some I never heard of. And the owner is willing and able to answer any questions and share his tremendous knowledge of these cars. Definitely worth the visit!!! It's great that he's preserving these machines and sharing the history. And really great he's sharing it with the public.

A Must-See for Antique Car Buffs

Very pleasant trip back in time...vehicles in the museum are surrounded by period ephemera. Wonderful that the owners are preserving these disappearing pieces of history and sharing their collection with the public.

Antique cars along with other items from the era of the vehicle. People are talking about electric cars today but you can see one from the early 19th century right here in this fantastic antique car museum. This collection of antique automobiles is easily one of the best I have seen. And, when you finish the tour, it's time to stop in the lobby on the way out for a delicious ice cream cone. This is one place not to miss while visiting Galax. However, it's best to call ahead and make sure someone will be there to let you in.

THE Perfect Place to Camp
Jun 2015 • Couples
The bathhouse was very clean and accessible. The grass was well mowed, the sites were level and graveled. They were all pull though sights with 30 and 50 amp service. Water and sewer was available at each location. $33.00 per night seemed a little steep, but everything else was great. No Wi-Fi and no
AT&T service in town. Very quiet and very convenient especially to the Rex Theater and Smokehouse Restaurant. Unfortunately all the sight are in a field and no shade in sight.
Old Crank’s is right across the street from the location of the Old Time Fiddler’s Competition. Very easy for a “big rig” to pull in. About one half mile from the Galax trail head for the New River Rail Trail. Tent camping is permitted.
Stay here!

Not your typical car museum.
Jul 2014 • Family
I visited this car museum this summer, as it was open on a Sunday unlike many other businesses in the area.

It is a unique museum because it contains the car collection owned by the man who runs the museum.

There are several vehicles and period artifacts on display, along with plaques that outline facts about the vehicle. This part is a self-guided tour; I believe the fee for the tour was $4 or $5 per person; well worth it.

The more interesting part of the stop here was in another room altogether; where the owner seemed to have just as many vehicles crammed into a garage-like space. These are vehicles that I believe he sometimes rotates the collection of for the museum displays.

A very unique stop that we definitely enjoyed.

They also sell ice cream here.

It's worth a visit, for sure!
