Very pleased to find Hemmings Motor News. Even though the museum was closed, the owner gave us a private tour. He showed our kids how the old engines worked and even took a family photo in an old motor coach! The kids were fascinated by the old cars and climbed in car after car to have their picture made. The gas station has tons of auto memorabilia and we were able to find some state car plates to add to our collection.

Stopped in while in the area for a Hemmings show in Saratoga Springs. They have a great collection of old vehicles and many things of interest to car junkies. The gentleman in the museum is very knowledgeable about all the various vehicles and things n display. We had a great time just talking about cars and the old days. I highly recommend this museum. You can see everything in a few minutes, or you can hang out and have a great afternoon.
Before you leave check the store as they sell memorabilia and a large selection of signs for the garage or den, Don't forget to fill up the car and experience service that is largely lost in this day of gas stations with convenience stores. They fill your tank, check oil and wash windshield, just like the good old days.

A Classic car Mecca and the Home of Hemmings Motor News.
I always visit Hemmings if I am in Vermont. They moved to the filling staion a few years ago and there is a Classic car Museum at the rear although I am not sure of opening times.
We got Coffee at the store and due to an amazing Hail storm, I was able to spend an hour or more looking round the merchandise without fear of my partner wishing to leave.
Excellent range of Clothing, Books, Magazines, Signs and Die Cast Models although on a visit about six years ago, they had old WALK / DONT WALK signs and I was able to ship one home to England!
Dont forget its a FULL Service Gas Station also! Thats Nostalgia!

Really enjoyed seeing the Hemmings Car collection and shopping in their car memorabilia shop while we were in Bennington. Best part was spotting the November 2002 issue of their "Rods & Performance" Magazine.....turns out that the car featured on the front is owned by the man across the street who owns the Bennington Motor Inn! Had a great conversation about the old car hobby!
