Throughly enjoyed this U-turn! Well worth the $5 to walk around and enjoy a step back in time. Really appreciated how on a lot of the items they told a quick story about how, where, when they acquired it. Actually saw a few pieces not seen at other museum.

Car lovers already know that the world is a car show. Every building with cars inside is then by definition, a car museum. However, this unique stop is the collection of a guy who loves cars and car memorabilia whose wife mans the place. She will tell you stories about the cars. He will tell stories about restoring the cars. You might not be able to find a nicer couple.
Even if you cannot convince a recalcitrant wife to darken the door of yet another car museum, stop to peruse the not-yet-restored selection out front waiting to be fumigated and restored to their former luster. So many things to enjoy no matter your perspective. And great folk to help you get more from your stop.

Stopped by first thing one morning when it was raining. Not a big car buff, but this place has a lot of really cool old cars. The owner has spent a lifetime of restoring these vehicles. He has true passion for the cars, and it really shows. All kinds of other antique memorabilia, including signs, toys, automotive parts, and much more. Cheap admission price, very much worth stopping in to see a different side of history than normal.

For a private collection, this place is impressive. Lots of extra stuff too (visible pumps, peddle cars, etc). If you are expecting to see hundreds of cars, then you will be disappointed, but for the price ($5) it was worth a stop.

If you like antique classic American cars, or even just American memorabilia from a bygone era, then stop at this family-owned classic car museum. After doing some research, I knew that I wanted to pay this place a visit. When we turned into the parking lot, my friends were a bit skeptical. Out front, there are rows of old, non-restored cars. Walk inside the building, though, and for $5 you will be able to see some of the most rare, and most beautifully restored, American classics sparkled with other American nostalgia. Plus, the owners are typical South Dakota nice -- warm and welcoming. For me, this was a highlight and a place I highly recommend visiting when you are in Rapid City.
