“I was expecting more cars and more info”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

The Volkswagens were not there the day we were - off in some other field down the road.... There were several corvettes of different years and styles on location but the building was very quiet and not a lot of information about each car was displayed. I realize this is a personal collection and it is very nice to admit the public at no charge but I was expecting to see more cars. The area surrounding the museum is nice and they put on a good show several times a year. Last time I was there was about fifteen years ago and they have definitely grown since then. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

“Very knowledgable”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Nicely displayed Corvettes, even a couple of prototypes. The staff was very knowledgeable with any questions that were ask. This is a small self guided tour, well organized. It is a private collection. They also have a sales room for anything Corvette. The Volkswagon were out for a show the day we were there, I would stop back again when passing through to see them. This museum is FREE and makes a good stop if passing through the area.

“If you like classic cars, this is worth a visit.”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

There's a good number of corvettes, both original and restored, here, and they are incredible. There are also some classic VW's here, but they weren't available for viewing when I visited. Volkswagen Fest was the upcoming weekend so they were preparing for that. The shop has good stuff, and the staff are very friendly. Best of all, the admission and parking are absolutely free.

“If you're into corvettes, this is for you!”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

This place is great for anyone who is into corvettes. The museum is full of old corvettes, there are also some VW there as well. It isn't an all day trip, my husband and I were in and out in about an hour. If you need someplace to pass some time though, and you want to check out some really nice cars, this is your place!
