I am not a car lover but I loved this museum. The drive getting there was so beautiful and I would love to come back in the autumn. The museum has such a vast collection of all types of cars. The different barns are maintained so nicely and present so well. The best part is the old Shell Station which takes you back in time. Kids love looking at all the cars and there is a barn where they can dress up as firefighters and take pictures in an old fire carriage. The Miniatures Museum is very cute and it is amazing how people have created mini models with such detail. My husband and I would love to be members and come back regularly.

A great place to visit and spectacular cars; Dusenbergs, Lincolns, Packards, and likely the largest exhibit of Franklin, air cooled engine, cars...and many RARE or one of a kind cars. WIsh we lived close enough to attend the many activities during the year. Shell station, Tucker car and office, SHELL station, diner, great quiet location. They are building a new Lincoln and Ford show room...do it!
Minimal fee

Very large Museum. They have such a large selection of cars. Also...The frozen custard at the 50's diner is out of this world.
