Actually attended a private party here. The older people in the group really enjoyed all the antique cars. Not much else to say, except that the place needs some renovations-- building seemed more worn out than the cars.

They have many old cars which actually shows whats they cost back then (very cool!) and also some buggys, one of which was found and they restored half so you can see its original condition. It's a great place with history but the building itself is old and stagnant. You can tell it hasn't been maintained (or cleaned). In the very back garage it is really cool to see all the extra cars that aren't displayed. Definitely worth the look but not sure if it's worth the fee.

The title says it all. There are cars here that you will not see anywhere else. Our Docent was very knowledgeable and had a keen insight into the histories of each of the display cars. Very nice place. would do it again!

Chilly weather dictated checking out indoor activities in the area, and went here on a whim. The collection is varied but incorporates some extraordinarily unusual cars including a number of fairly esoteric sports cars. Not all the cars are in ultra mint condition but they do all reflect some degree of interesting history
Overall highly recommended stop on 41 for the chilly or rainy day

My wife and I went here during our 2 day stay in Sarasota. We met the woman who works and the front desk and she was very nice. We walked unguided through the museum, it took just under 2 hours. They allowed us to take pictures and we took plenty! Most cars have a placard that tells you some background info and there were large posters throughout that go into the history of famous car makers. Most cars are in pristine condition and some very very old cars reflect the wear down of time. Their cars span the entire timeframe from the first motor carriages to recent concept cars. We had a great time.
