I have visited the automobile museum several times with my husband, who purchased a one-year membership. The displays and exhibits change regularly, so there are many opportunities to visit throughout the year and see different attractions. From hot rods and muscle cars to vintage tractors, it is always a delight to check-out the current offering. The gift shop is quite... More

This was a very well- thought out and nicely arranged collection of antique cars. From oldest to newest it was a great collection of automotive memorabilia and beautiful machinery. The cars of the 30s through the 50s were works of art. As a child of the 60s I remember when the 64 1/2 Ford Mustang came out and other such... More

Absolutely worth the visit. Cool cars, friendly service, kids (4 & 7 yrs) loved it, too. Elvis posters didn't feel like they belonged there but otherwise just a really great place to visit.

Our first visit to this museum was a week ago. Linda at the counter gave us an overview with a load of information. Linda is a GEM!!! I have visited several car museums in my life and this one exceeded them all by FAR! This museum was started as a private collection. I believe there are over 100 cars in... More

I am a big car nut so I put this on my list of things to see. It was great! They have everything from a 1886 Mercedes-Benz to cars used in movies and very rare cars from manufacturers you've never heard of. The story of the man and his friend who compiled the collection is very interesting too. Currently there... More

The museum does have some cars we had never seen before and some we had never heard of so the collection is nicely varied. We were also pleased that foreign cars were included in the exhibit. However, being "car people" we were disappointed in the layout and the lack of information on the cars. Zigzagging back and forth to view... More

Very nice car museum with lots of beautiful cars. A self guided tour, so you can take as much time as you want to see each individual exhibit. With any questions, the staff was very informative and more than happy to assist. I would highly recommend this museum!
