This place has an incredible collection of cars and engines mostly related to American oval track racing. Unfortunately, the tour format in which a guide takes you around the museum for about 2-1/2 hours leaves no time to explore anything on one's own.
As a former racer and automotive engineer, I would have loved to spend the whole time examining the race cars and especially the historic engines. But we were always being herded along to other rooms with things that I had absolutely no interest in such as pedal cars, toy cars, and various personal object collections of the owner and his family. He has every right to put whatever he wants into his museum, but I felt it to be a waste of my limited time to have to look at it all.
What was even worse is that the collection of sprint cars was one of the things that I wanted to see the most, but we got to them only at the very end and then our guide had to call "time's up" as we were led to the exit. Maybe if he'd spent less time extolling the careers of various local dirt-track racers? Needless to say, it was overall a disappointing experience.
