Overview

This collection of over 200 cars represents one man's 41-year love affair with the automobile. It also represents America's love affair and fascination with automobiles and the evolution of our society around the world of wheels. You'll see a variety of body types and styles. You'll enjoy the incredible detail crafted into many of these vehicles - artistic hood ornaments, instrument gauge panels, wheel styles and headlights. Coordinated together to tell their own stories and help us track the evolution of the model and of the age of automobiles. IPads are provided free of charge to give you additional photographs of the vehicle's details - some not able to be seen by the public as well as more information about the vehicles. This attraction is more than just automobiles. It features artistic displays, interactive multi-media shows and models.

Takes a few hours to go through this one, longer if you really enjoy the history and want to read the information placards on each car. The cars are good quality, and each has an unusual amount of information that is on a placard. I...More

Went with my parents and had a great time. Wide selection and excellently curated. Convenient location and totally worth the nominal fee. Museum does a good job of rotating visiting/on loan cars for a unique experience every time.

From the Boss Hogg Cadillac to Elvis' pink one, De Lorean, Corvettes and Hudsons, they have it all. And they have International pickups along with other makes as well. This is such a cool car museum and well worth the trip.

We went to Kearney to watch the sandhill crane migration. As a side trip went went to see the car collection. It is one of the best I have been to. Worth the time to visit.

Not sure either, as I talked to one of the people who really know a lot about the cars, and this one through him a loop. What else might the Apperson Jackrabbit been called, or what other connection might there be?
