“free must see”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

This is a filling station where they pump the gas! Inside the store is some gifts all to do with transportation. Behind the filling station is a FREE have to see museum. They have all kinds of cars, truck, motorcycles and bikes. They are all restored and on display where you can walk up to them and look inside. It is very fun to see.

“Christmas spirit abounds at Hemmings Motor News”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

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.

“Must stop for car fans”
Reviewed August 17, 2011

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.
