Attraction details
Owner description: World's largest collection of Hudson, Essex, & Terraplane automobiles. Ranging from 1909 to 1956 the collection houses some of the finest examples of the autos produced by the Hudson Automobile Company. Both pristine restorations and pristinely preserved examples walk you through time while you reminisce about America's love affair with the automobile.

While at a quilt show we discovered that some very old red cross quilts were on display over the hoods and seats of the Hudsons. My husband said that it was worth the price of admission just to see the cars.

I think there were about 50 cars total. We got to meet the man whose father donated all the cars, so that was a PLUS. The cost was $8.00, but we got a senior discound. I think I should have had my husband write this review, as he REALLY enjoyed it.

If you like classic cars, this is the place to go. Admission fee is nominal. Gift shop won't be open til early in August, as a new management company has recently taken over. 51 of the most gorgeous cars you ever saw. The facility is just perfect. Knowledgeable docents will give you the tour..just the very nicest place !

So nice that they worked the quilts with the cars. It was amazing how they matched the colors of the quilts and the cars.

If you are a car museum buff, this is a place not to miss. It's not all that big, but it will take you a couple of hours to go through it if you enjoy each of the cars on display. Even us ladies enjoyed it. We had a personal tour with a volunteer guide and he told us interesting history with the cars that weren't on the information cards. Was a great stop on an impromptu kind of day!
