Neat to go to one place and see so many different vehicles, showing the youngsters of today things from way back when. Not just cars! A fun trip through this museum.

You'd think...a car museum in a small town in Illinois....but you would be wrong. It is great, and I don't care about cars. There is so much more to see that spans many years of history, TV, actors, sings etc. It is truly a must see. Allow some time, it is very interesting and will take you longer than you think to take it all in.

Who would expect something this awesome in a small Illinois town? I sure did not. I found it totally interesting and very tastefully done.

I have visited museums all over the world and frankly this gem shocked me. The admission price is well worth it. The presidential limos are spectacular as are the WW II Axis leader auto exhibit. If you like movies, country and pop music stars their relics are also here as is a John F. Kennedy exhibit much more interesting than the JFK Library in Boston. Plus the Lincoln relics are awesome. Plan on a two hour visit. The owner has spent a lot of money acquiring items and the exhibition space is extremely tasteful--How about White House furniture and a creation of the East Room in the WH for starters?

Okay, I like museums. You can take my word for it; this is really worth the time and the money! The Lincoln Room alone is worth the price of admission. Then too, I love the JFK exhibit. It is excellent. The gangster area is interesting as well. Oh, and then there are the cars. You have to see the cars of the US Presidents. Hitler's car. Batman's car. The Flintstones.... You get the idea.
It really has some really neat vehicles but it is SO MUCH MORE than just an auto museum.
Go and thank me later.
