Stopped here on way to car event in Kalamazoo. Great little museum. Informative and interesting info on Oldsmobiles and R E Olds. Was not on our way but worth the time.

Spent a delightful hour and a half leisurely strolling through the RE Olds Museum with my family. They have dozens of pristine Oldsmobiles from every era. It is a feast for the eyes, without being overwhelming. Inexpensive, and WELL worth it.

This building has a lot more to see than it looks from the outside. The history of RE Olds is very interesting. The cars and displays are fantastic. Don't miss this if you are in Lansing.

A very nice collection of REO and Oldsombile memorabilia. The cars are also very impressive. Cost is only $5.00 for seniors and well worth it. Parking is free and it is close to downtown are.
