Some awesome cars and the exhibit changes every 6 weeks or so. If you are into cars, this is a must stop. They have ipads in front of each car explaining the back story to the displayed item. For a well spent hour, it is...More

This is a very small collection of what looks like an amateur car person. There is nothing revealed inside that can't be seen for free from the windows or at any classic car dealership or auction or car show.

Small shows, well curated with just enough info to keep your interest, but not overwhelm. The surfboards were an interesting diversion, but the cars were pretty fabulous. What will happen when the rich backers gt bored and their interest drifts on? Enjoy while you can!

Don't know if it is still relevant but the museum is a reasonable walking distance from the Marriott. I would estimate 10-12 blocks, mostly uphill.

There is parking in the lot near the museum. The collection rotates and is relatively small. Our visit was only an hour. It's not cheap, but the cars are in excellent condition.
