Nice day with the parents.

Nice day. They had some really great cars and the overall cost for the day was pretty low. It is a nice place to go and do something when the weather is bad also.

They do have some very nice vehicles, but in reality it's just a big showroom for a car dealer. Once was enough Full price is $15 a head.

This place is fun not only because of the all the cars, which are amazing, but there are literally thousands of antiques for sale in the barns on the property. And the memories come in because the cars are from old tv shows, movies, and from famous people! A must see in the area!

On February 15th a friend and I toured this large museum that filled 5 warehouses. In addition to hundreds of classic old cars that have been impeccably restored, we enjoyed cars from Hollywood movies, cars owned by actors and many others from television comedies and dramas. Many of the cars displayed are available for sale. There are also displays of... More

Thank you for the great review! We did a fast expansion and we are working on additional signage as well as the possibility of a self-guided GPS tour from your phone. There is no doubt that there would be a much greater appreciation for the items if their stories were told. You'll also be able to get some of these... More

The auto museum is always a fun afternoon, or you can take most of the day & go shop the antique shops too. I'm not a car buff,but I do enjoy the variety of vehicles here, from the ones in the movies, to the old antiques.

I've been going to Volo for over 30 years. I wish so much I would have purchased the lifetime pass 20 years ago but oh well. I buy the family pass yearly and have been taking my children and now my grand children at least monthly if not more often. My wife loves the antique dealers but my passion is... More

Thank you for the wonderful review! "Where do you find these things" is one of our most asked questions. There is no silver bullet, it takes a lot of searching. We actually have a TV show coming out on the History Channel called 'Volo, House of Cars' that will focus on our "treasure hunts". More

We visited right after Christmas, and drove almost 90 minutes to visit. As a relative brought us, I was not expecting the $15 / adult and $9 / kid price. But since we had driven so far, we sucked it up and paid. Three plus hours later, I admit I got my money's worth! I think it would be a... More

Thank you for this great review. With our name "Volo Auto Museum", many people expect to see nothing but cars. But we are a family business with many different tastes and it come though in our business by being able to then provide a wide variety of stuff to see. We have 3 generations from ages 8 - 67 that...

If you like cars and other vintage rides you are on the right track here. They have hundreds of cars and motor vehicles on display and many are even for sale. The collection spans over all decades and is probably 80% US models. Very nice inscenations of movie cars etc. But very cramped for good pictures.
