“Great little rest stop to break the drive with plenty to see.”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

We stopped in more for a break from driving but sooo pleased we did. Excellent little museum jam-packed with some exquisite US automotive history. The collection is diverse and beautifully maintained, we wore out our cameras getting amazing shots. Definitely visit if you're the least bit interested in Americana or just beautiful cars, and who isn't?

“Right off the strip”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

Place was easy to find, right down from our hotel. Went early morning when they opened so we had the place to ourselves. Owners are very nice. Some souvenirs, but not cheap. Cost is only $5. Not a lot of cars but the ones they do have are nice. Lots of photos & plaques on the wall to read.

“classic cars!”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

This place is awesome! Easy to get to off of I40. Santa Rosa is a lovely town and it is historic route 66.
Admission was only $5 to see about 30 classic cars that travelled the road. Many are for sale if you are interested.
A 57 chevy is cut in half for the cash register/desk, much to my husband's dismay but it makes it very unique.

“Wonderful small museum”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

If you like old automobiles, this is the place to go. Many to look at and you are able to get very close to the cars. Not overly commercial; rather obviously a labor of love owned by a car enthusiast. Very reasonable admission charge ($5) and worth every penny. Go there!
