The museum is the best and most enjoyable car enthusiast dream. As a automotive enthusiast the museum is the best collection I have ever seen. I really can't wait to show my family and friends.

This museum has a very unusual collection of vintage cars and engines that is beyond anything I've ever seen at other car museums. I totally enjoyed the place.

The quality of the displays and the wide variety leave you torn between prolonged study and excitement about 'what's next.' Every visit is fun because there's always new displays. One visit is just... More

I am seriously into cars, especially vintage racing, and any time I am anywhere near Nebraska I take the time to go to Lincoln to visit the Speedway Motors Museum. I have probably been there 15 times. My wife has suggested that I should maybe just move to Lincoln. This is a spectacular collection of innovative early automotive items. The... More

Hungrymen, What a great review! 15 times, that might be a record! We would love to have you move to Lincoln and become a Docent., although we do understand your wife may have something to say about that. In all seriousness though, thanks for the great review. It's folks like you that make this a great place to work... Hurry... More
