    Oh my goodness, what a great place!
    If you miss this stop on your trip, you've missed a very cool experience. This museum is organized with little vignettes and some great autos!! If you are a car buff, or just someone who likes a lot of neat things, this place is worth your time to stop in. Very helpful and friendly staff. They have a retail area and were kind enough to ship the items we purchased. Stop by this jewel in Gillette.

    Americana at its best
    Wow, what a wonderful find. Anyone that loves old autos, Americana, vintage signage and a good milkshake or latte this is right up your alley. We took a ride up from devils tower. Easy stop off of 90 if your heading cross country.

    Great stop, so interesting and worth the overnight in Gillette!
    This was a really great stop! I am so glad we worked it into our road trip itinerary, and only an hour to Devil's Tower. My parents loved walking through and reliving their childhood. So clean and well put together and the family running the museum was very sweet!

    What an amazing place
    This is so much more than just an auto museum. The collection of metal and neon signs, vintage gas pumps and other auto memorabilia as well as a vintage barber shop, bicycle shop and general stores completely outfitted from days gone by. Everything was spotless and shined! They also had an antique store section and a snack bar. We enjoyed every minute of our visit. The ladies running the museum and store were very nice and recommended some restaurants in town for us. Don't miss this gem when in Gillette!

    Awesome, will come back again.
    We loved this museum. We have been to numerous Route 66 auto museums...this was the best one yet. I loved the store setting, Hudsons and the drive-in movie. Staff was extremely friendly. Would come back again.

    A neon lit gem.
    This place is what you wish your grandparents garage looked like. Bigger and better than I expected. The cars are great but so is all the memorabilia. Definitely worth a pit stop for car fans and history buffs.

    WOW WONDERFUL
    Ladies this is one you will enjoy! Believe me I wasn’t jumping up and down when I found out we were going to an AUTO museum but I would go back again. I liked seeing the pristine old cars but what took my breath away was all of the signs metal and neon I was mesmerized. They have added things other than cars and garage memorabilia. There is an old general store section, barbershop section, toys and much much more. Cars are out in the open so you can see every detail although they do ask that you do NOT touch them. Our cost was $5 each (seniors) but you get that credited off something in the gift shop area. Spend an hour or so here you will not be sorry🎉
    Thank you so much for the nice review! We are so glad you enjoyed your time!

    What a find....
    I can’t praise this museum enough. I’m not particularly interested in autos but this was a real eye opener. The attached store and museum were spotlessly clean and the exhibits were truly fascinating and clearly looked after with great care. Thoroughly recommended...

A great place to visit if you enjoy old cars and related items. There is now a new mining section too. Several recreations of old stores such as a motel, barber shop, general store etc. THe antique shop next door is very interesting too!

Stayed in Gillette overnight on our way to Yellowstone. Saw this museum and decided to stop in. Really happy we did! The antique side of the museum is great. There are also one of a kind creations that are really awesome.

Really enjoyed all the antique cars and the garage equipment that was used in the day to work on them.

This is definitely a must see!

I walk to the antique store after school very often. It’s a place that you could look at for hours and still not see everything. They have a variety of mostly 20th century antique items. The prices are AMAZING. I found an 80 year old custom-made houndstooth coat for only 15 dollars two months ago. And I recently purchased a “Gone With the Wind” limited edition doll for only 12 dollars. They change the display items nearly every day and have antique furniture and clothes, too. The employees are very knowledgeable about everything in the store and are always around to answer any questions you have. This is my favorite store in town and you should definitely find time to look in the store. Bonus: they also have delicious gourmet chocolates for sale.
