This museum is spectacular. The spaces are large, clean attractive and very easy to navigate thru. Although there are 3 levels, the walkways are gradual ramps, there are elevators at each level and plenty of benches for taking a short rest. The staff members are visable every where and always ready to answer questions or offer tidbits of information about... More

Great for anyone who likes cars. Not for kids. One to two hours. Long ramps. Should be ok for wheel chairs. Most cars are behind ropes so no touching.

Incredible the amount of cars this place has. Talked to several staff. Knowledgeable about the cars in each era. Good to know that many of the cars are owned by private owners. One of my favorites is the Tucker. Didn't have one, but a staff member told me there was one close by and the owner doesn't mind visitors.

Fun few hours at this museum - we were rushed so weren't able to spend as much time as we would have liked, but we saw all the cars - albeit quickly - in the hour we had to spend! And the free photo in the old car was a nice touch - with digital files to post on social... More

What a fun place to visit. Lots of American cars, and some European and British ones too. Race car driving simulator fun for kids and adults. Plan on a good two hours.

The building itself is beautiful. The collection of cars is impressive and worth seeing. If you don't like cars, don't come here. There is nothing else here. The volunteers are charismatic and helpful. They will happily tell you everything about specific cars. One minor thing was that there wasn't a clear route to follow. You would go down the middle...
