“Best Classic Car display you will find”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

RM uses their facility in Chatham to restore classic cars to mint condition, before they go to an RM Auction somewhere in the world. You get to see this ever changing parade of vehicles. Some with racing credentials, some used in films, like the James Bond car. or the Le Mans car both of which sold for millions of dollars.

This is Chatham-Kent's best kept secret, and for eight bucks is a bargain

“Craftsmen actually working on historic cars.”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

I have been to the RM Classic Car Exhibit a number of times. The cars on display will vary depending on what they are working on at that time. One of the few places you can see craftsmen actually work on historic cars. The cars are fantastic and when finished are probably nicer than new. They also have a more less static display of cars but this changes as most are for sale or owned by customers. You could tell the tour guides love cars and will talk to you about anything related to cars or local history.

“Exotic Cars”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

Went here a couple of years ago and was just blown away at the prestigious cars that were on exhibit. Really worth going into. Even had a car like James Bond drove in the movies and an actual race car.

“The best automotive exhibit I have seen”
Reviewed November 11, 2010

RM is one of the world's foremost antique and collector automobile auctioneer and restorer. This museum, which is constantly changing, houses a large number of fascinating vehicles. Here, you can see real Dukes of Hazzard cars and travel through the history of the automobile.

I have been there with friends and family a couple of times, and each time the person managing the museum has given us a one hour history of many of the cars. Racing cars worth a fortune, cars from TV series, cars from a company that was ahead of its time, but suppressed by the big 3.

Probably the most interesting (and least known-about) attractions in Chatham-Kent.
