I have never been to a car museum. This place is so interesting. My 5 year old grandson was a joy to take, he knows more about cars at his age that I ever knew. He loved the train..

Admittedly, as a car enthusiast this was of particular interest to me. But this museum is a treasure trove of information about Wisconsin auto manufacturers and, of course, Hartford’s own Kissel company. Put this one on your list of must see attractions in Wisconsin.

OMG! Who knew so many cars were manufactured in Wisconsin? The beautiful Kissel Kars with their 27+ coats of paint and a "virgin" Nash! The awesome Inter-State! Check it out but don't hurry or you'll miss something!

Was here for the fall of fame induction. Very nicely repurposed building to house many cars. Only wish there was a little more space for the Hall of Fame. Staff was nice and quite informative.

We drove five hours to get to this museum. My expectations were low but my husband was thrilled. Nice facility. Easy parking. There is an elevator. The museum is in the same building as an arts center. The lobby is totally stark. No gift shop,...More
