This car Museum is a pleasant way to spend your afternoon with great pieces of history. Ringling College often sends their Illustration Majors on field trips to sketch these pieces of art. From time to time they have car shows for the neighborhood to participate. In front of the building is a Flintstones car to get a family picture. There... More

Hey no charge for dad on his day. Was worth the fee anyway. A good variety of cars to peruse. A little history. Much bigger than it looks from the outside with a lot of cars to see. Nice highlights go for it!

We went there with our kids and they were really happy once we left the building. Both are teens and car fans. Some of the cars are funny, others are interesting and then there are the ones that are breathtaking (e.g. Ford GT). So, if you are interested and have nothing else to do for 2 hours, have a look.

Decided to give the Sarasota Classic Car Museum a try since we love looking and different cars. Some of these were amazing, some interesting and some challenged us as to whether we knew about them. The cars are beautiful and the history is detailed on a card by each car. It's an easy place to meander and enjoy.

We visit Sarasota often and I try to visit the museum as often as I can. I love the simple charm of museum. There is a wide selection of beautiful cars on display, showing very early examples, right through to relatively modern classics. There is also a wonderful display of the fine Italian 'Iso' vehicles to enjoy. Don't forget to... More

Makes you appreciate the design that went into older cars. I like to imagine which car I would like to drive if money were no object.
