The Blackhawk Museum (sometimes also referred to as the Behring Auto Museum), located in the Blackhawk Plaza shoppng center, in Danville, CA, houses an outstanding collection of classic cars. The focus is on pre-WWII cars, but there are also some great post-war cars as well. Some of the cars rotate in and out, but there are a number of Bugattis, pre-war Mercedes, Duesenbergs, Rolls-Royce, and many other classics from both Europe and the US. The display setting is great, and wandering volunteer docents are always available to tell you more than what is printed on the displays. Local car clubs sometimes hold small shows in the parking lot outside the museum, so it's a good idea to check the museum's event calendar (not to avoid parking issues, but to possibly time your visit to a show of interest). Blackhawk Plaza itself is very pleasant to walk around, and is a nice place to bring small kids, as they have a nice outdoor play area, and kids also enjoy feeding the ducks in the plaza's "lagoon" and waterway. (Although the museum itself wouldn't really appeal to small children.) There are also a number of decent restaurants in the plaza, from burgers and sandwiches, to Mexican, to sushi, to Italian, to fine-dining. Great way to spend a half-day or so! The museum's architecture is also spectacular.
