This museum was nice and full of vintage cars and info. Even though they have guided tours and an audible narration you can use, we were satisfied with taking the tour on our own. If you are interested in reading and examining all the info available, make sure you have at least 2 hours

We made a mistake and parked on the street around the block at metered curbside. On approach by foot we realized there was a free parking lot. We decided to go in and not worry about it. Luckily the people at the museum ticket counter gave us a heads up that we really should cut our losses and go move... More

Someone told me that originally this was even larger at one point! This was a wonderful museum with some fabulous looking Eye candy vehicles from the 1900s to the 1960s. Many are unique one-of-a-kind, while others were owned by celebrities, all put together and arranged carefully by decades, and it was a delightful informative time to be had.

This museum was a pleasant surprise. The number of cars and their variety was impressive. Older cars dominated and were meticulously maintained. It was well lighted and allowed very close up viewing. If you like cars, this is a must see.

A great trip in the Way-Back machine to see these restored cars of yesteryear. You could just imagine the glory it was to drive and tour in one the cars.

Wow. If you're a car buff or just nostalgic you'll really enjoy this place. Cars from every Era from the 1800s steamers to John Wayne's vette. Even some off road trucks and a great selection of race cars of all kinds. Really fun!
