My husband and I recently visited the museum. We picked a day when cars were being driven on the outside track. I enjoyed not only viewing the cars in the museum but actually seeing them being driven. I was very impressed with the way the cars were displayed inside the museum. The staff was great. They were very knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy their jobs. Woody was especially helpful. I We were there a few hours. Check the website for the dates the cars will be driven.

I attended a private event at the museum. It was very different venue with amazing collection of cars. All the cars are in working condition and unique. Great variety and history. The museum is close to airport and easy to visit and plenty of parking. There are special events every month.

This was quite a gem. My son had been here and suggested we take it in while in the area. It was terrific. We spent quite a while there. The cars were very interesting and the staff was very helpful. We got quite a bit of additional information from them. What I found interesting is that most of these cars are preserved, not restored. They are what they were when they were on the track. Who would have thought that a stock 1954 Austin Healy could be taken out to Bonneville Salt flats and set records. Things are different now. Anyway, you gotta take this one in. It is fun and interesting.

My husband and I visited here after hearing about it on the Internet. I am not a car enthusiast, however the display of historical cars is just outstanding. We spent a few hours there and My husband was just in awe of all the vehicles. Some reviewers say they weren't there long, but if you read all the information that has been researched for each vehicle, you definitely need a few hours there.
