“Gilmore visit - August 2013”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We visited the Gilmore on Monday, August 26 on our way home to Northwest Ohio from Corvette Crossroads weekend in Mackinaw City, MI.
We stopped in Grand Rapids Sunday to visit the Meijer Gardens, spent the night then visited Gilmore Monday morning.
There are three outstanding museums in the Midwest - ACD Museum, Auburn, IN.; National Corvette Museum, Bowling Green, KY.; and The Gilmore, Hickory Corners, MI.
Gilmore is a jewel with unbelievable support from major car clubs (Ford; Cadillac; Lincoln; etc.). Do not miss visiting Gilmore!
If you combine a two day trip to include the Gilmore and Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, I guarantee you and your wife will more than pleased!
Also great food at the diner on Gilmore grounds.

“A Car Lover's Dream”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This museum consists of several buildings spread over several acres just West of Hickory Corners Michigan. Housing many perfect mechanical specimens from days gone by, one finds themselves immersed in the era and salivating at the pristine autos on display. The grounds and facilities are as perfect as the antiques. A side trip well worth the effort.

Great experience for the auto enthusiast. Never had the opportunity to drive a real Model T. Lots of fun. I would recommend it highly.

“Great way to spend an entire afternoon!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Thanks to the Gilmore staff and volunteers that welcomed us to the Gilmore Car Museum this past weekend as we spent the day touring the amazing exhibits. Getting through the museum in a half day is clearly impossible and we will be back to complete our visit. The quality of the exhibits is impeccable and the stories of each vehicle were such a fantastic touch - LOVED it all! The friends I brought were beyond impressed that Barry County is home to such an amazing collection of historic automobiles displayed in state of the art facilities - kudos to the Gilmore team!!

I went to the Gilmore to participate in their Model T driving class. Wonderful experience. The museum displays, both indoors and out, are excellent.
