“More than you can imagine!!!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

I was totally surprised at all of the cars and other history in this place. It was so awesome. You can spend hours reading all of the information about Elvis, JFK, Hitler, etc. Many cars from famous history events and from racing and movies. It's not just all cars either, there is letters, costumes, furniture, ticket stubs. Just a lot of cool things that you will never see anywhere else. Defiantly worth checking out!

“More than an auto museum”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This hidden gem is definitely worth a visit. The museum contains famous cars and stars, gangster land, world of speed, movie land memorabilia, Abraham Lincoln exhibit, and world leaders. Everything from Elvis to President Kennedy. The museum is tucked away in an industrial area, but worth finding. Check out their website for more information, and directions.

“ROSCOE'S GEM”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

I live in Roscoe and I tell everyone you MUST SEE this place. The name might imply simply Autos...but, that is far from the case. If you are intrigued by the Kennedy era you MUST see the multitude of Kennedy related items...including Jackie Kennedy's dresses and gowns. They displays are well done and there are displays that will amaze you. Our grandson loves the room that has the Batmobile Cars. Our son enjoyed seeing the Delorean from the movie Back To The Future...and he laughed out loud at the Family Truckster.....FUN FOR ALL.. NOTE: Their hours vary so...call first!
