My husband and brother especially liked this.

The cars were beautiful, shiny and clean. My SIL and I talked with the lady that sold us our tickets as we got through quicker than our husbands did. :)

Totally amazed by the cars and bikes etc. The history and quality of the cars is fantastic. We went on a quiet morning not knowing what to expect, we were on a holiday to see family and we had come from Wales, UK. I was in my element, seeing cars I hadn't seen for some time, others I had only... More

Lots of cars from many decades. Most cars had the back story of the car written along side. Place is very large so it does not feel crowded.

My husband loves old American cars and memorabilia and is an avid reader of anything to do with cars - takes him back to his childhood! On a recent trip to the US to visit family, his brother found out about this place and we made a trip here one morning. What a visit! From the moment we walked in... More

We spent an afternoon walking through this museum. It was so much fun! The owners are friendly, personable and spent time answering our questions. They have a large variety of automobiles from different eras, mostly owned by the museum, a few on loan from individuals. The warehouse is well kept and roomy to be able to take time to view...

Depending on where you are staying, this may be a distance away! If you are close by, it is worth the trip to see this brothers' private collection. However, if you are a distance away, you may want to save it for a rainy day (which is what we did).

They have some other antiques as well, some even you may remember from your childhood. There are always plenty of knowledge savvy people on hand to answer questions as well as tell... More

Nice museum and well worth the visit. They have a wide selection of both old and new. There are about four rows of cars (and even a fire truck) intermingled with other old items. And the Mayberry Squad Car. Once you turn in off the road you kind of have to make a circle around to the front of the... More

We greatly enjoyed our visit to the Bennett Classics Antique Car Museum. The 60+ vehicles were presented in a charming facility by very nice people. The Bennett brothers have been collecting American cars and trucks and related automobilia for over 40 years. Their collection ranges as far back as 1915 with many originals and restored vehicles from each decade since.
