The mirrored walls of the Tallahassee Automobile Museum enclose more than just automobiles! This 100,000 sf. facility houses cars, trucks and memorabilia of all kinds. In addition to the antique cars, muscle cars, concept cars, and trucks -- check out the eclectic collection of Steinway pianos, Remington sculptures, Case knives, Barbie dolls, boats, boat motors, children's pedal cars, and die-cast toys. Journey through history with Native American artifacts, firearms, antique cash registers, pocket watches, salt-cellars, baby bottles, silver spoons, baseball cards, antique golf balls and clubs, 100-year-old brass-bladed fans, art objects from Thailand, neon signs, stained glass, a horse from a carousel, a children's barber chair shaped like an airplane and much, much more. Part shrine, part history lesson, part pack-rat's paradise, part garage and part art gallery -- except, in this case, the art has four spotless wheels and can go from 0 to 60 faster than a Cezanne can. It's truly an amazing museum of American history.

$15 entry fee which should be $5. The first floor had some nice old cars but then it turned into a thrift store on steroids. Hundreds of pocket knives, die cast cars, pottery, arrowheads, etc. save your money and go to a real museum

The museum is a pretty cool place to visit. Takes a good part of the day. Lots of things besides cars. It would be nice if Mr. Moore would donate a room to the Big Bend Model Railroad for their exhibits to run continuously. The...More

Amazing collections - from antique automobiles to motorcycles to sewing machines to telephones to typewriters to adding machines and more. Great for families with older children (ten years or more).

We had spent the morning walking around the Maclay Gardens, and decided to try something different in the afternoon. I had read the reviews here on Trip Advisor, and there were even more collections than we had expected. If you're the kind of person that...More

Tallahassee Antique Car Museum has something to interest everyone. Even though it is advertised as a car museum there are plenty of other things to see. To mention a few-a man's complete collection of pen knives. An American Indian collection of canoes and artwork. For...More

This is a great place to visit if you get a chance. Although automobiles are the main attraction, they have a wonderful collection of pianos, toys, and all kinds of sports paraphernalia. My favorite part was the Batman exhibit.

Yes, we do have a small gift shop...really just come glass cases with items and souvenirs for sale. We don't have a snack shop. Since we don't allow any food or drink in the Museum, we don't tempt people with snacks and... More
