I'm not even into cars but I learned a lot! There are vintage clothing mixed in with antique cars. There are also several informative and interesting film reels that repeat, so you can sit a spell while you take it in.More

Very complete and accurate representation of the birth of the auto industry. Beautiful and well preserved cars with interesting historical stories. Also mannequins dressed in period clothing and several displays of accessories from each era. Can easily spend 2-3 hours perusing the exhibits.
