“A Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

They have a scavanger hunt for kids and this was a plus. They also have a great selection of cars with lots of information about them. Wow! It was just amazing how great of shape the cars were in. They were nicely displayed too. It was a great way to spend the afternoon.

“Strange and wonderful vehicles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Fantastic collection of rare, prototype and just plain strange cars, from a 3-wheeler BMW to a primer-coated thing powered by a Stanley Steamer steam engine. There are tons of Czech cars, some boxy East German cars, MG's, propellor-powered cars, two amphibious vehicles, Citroens, and some tiny econoboxes that make a SmartCar look huge. Thoroughly entertaining!

“Very fun and interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

This museum was pretty neat and I would recommend to any real car lover to visit. Several odd and unusual cars you only hear about are here and you can take as many pics as you want. The only complaint I have is that almost all cars are european, but in the end I would go back.

“Amazing variety of cars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

The variety of cars on display is quite amazing. Most of the cars have a nice description next to them providing a little history about the model and/or the vehicle on display. The best part is the fact that there are no barriers around the vehicles. While touching the cars is discouraged, you have the opportunity to stick you head in the cars and get up close and personal. Never been to a car museum that let you do that.

“Awesome exhibits!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

I don't know many people that have been her but it's a hidden gem. Love this place, even if you aren't a "motor head". The variety of vehicles and information on each is like a trip to Europe. The small car exhibit is fun and revealing.
