    Amazing collection of cars for all ages.
    This an amazing collection of cars - of all kinds - classic, vintage, muscle and the list goes on. We took our grand kids - ages 16, 13 and 9 and they were mesmerized. (Not an easy feat for this group.) Brought back some cool memories of the 60's and 50's cars for grandpa and grandma too. A not miss experience if you're in the area or even as a destination trip.

    An Amazing Experience for Car and Art Lovers
    The Newport Car Museum was a very pleasant surprise. We had family in from out of town who really wanted to go to the museum. While I like classic cars, I expected not to love this museum. I couldn't have been more wrong. The expansive building is full of the most beautifully restored cars – it’s almost overwhelming. At every turn, there is another grouping of cars. There are staff walking throughout who have some fantastic stories of the cars, give directions to cars you may have an interest in, and offer assistance with anything you need. The building is immaculately maintained, and it has a gift shop with a great selection of items to choose from. Overall, I can’t recommend this more highly if you have any interest in classic cars. You feel like you’re in an art museum instead of a car museum.

    Does Not Disappoint
    Great Place for visit!! We loved all the variety of cars from different years and both American and foreign. We took 2 -13 year old boys and they were blown away as we were! The backstory on some of the cars in movies was fun too! Loved the touch of the retro furniture too!

    My dream car collection - a must see!!
    We visited the Newport Car Museum during a weekend visit to Newport. I’ve been to car museums in the past, but this is by far the best I’ve ever seen. The collection is made of up 95+ cars in a modern and spacious facility. It is easy to walk around the cars to see them from every angle. The museum has detailed and interesting write-ups with specifications on all cars. The collection is the private collection of Gunther Buerman who was at the museum the day we visited and greeted us warmly. The cars are clearly a personal passion and a dream collection for any car fan. Cars range from a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible, to a 1965 Mustang convertible, to a 1965 Ferrari 250 GTO to a 1969 Dodge Charger. Don’t forget to visit the amazing gift store with take home scaled models of every car you can imagine. Highly recommend!

    Best Car Museum
    Visited the Newport Car Museum while staying in the area. The collection of cars is truly outstanding. Exhibits showcase the features and history of each car. We particularly enjoyed the Corvette gallery and muscle car room. Highly recommend!

    Fun Time Memories For All
    I always enjoy visiting the Newport Car Museum . This is the fourth time this year I have been there 11-18-23 . I took my brother in-law from Florida there he said that it was the best all around collection of cars he has ever seen in one place . We would like to Thank Vinny and his wonderful staff for their personal attention and extreme knowledge of the cars . We appreciated they answered all of our questions. It’s definitely a class facility and staff . Thanks Bill and Don !

    The Museum beat expectations
    Wow! The museum has a great selection of cars from sports cars to muscle cars to exotic cars. It was the perfect way to spend a chilly, foggy day .... at least for a "car guy."

    Great car museum
    Awesome collection of cars, very well displayed. I took 2 -14 year old boys here that spent 2 hours walking around admiring the cars. All the staff were very helpful and there to answer any questions or give you info on any of the cars.

    It's really an art museum that features cars!
    The place is gorgeous, filled to the brim with about 100 beautiful and amazing cars. Even if you are not a car fanatic, it's just a fabulous place to walk around and admire the beauty. Every car is started at least once a month and none of them are reproductions, they are all originals. There are detailed signs with each that offer all the car fanatic information, as well as little tidbits for those who like cars, but don't need all the nitty-gritty details. The docents are so friendly and engaging. There are also benches/chairs that are high art, so it's not just cars. What a fascinating display - so well done.
