The Car Museum is in my opinion the best one of the many I've visited across the US. Wonderful classic and collectible cars, all displayed so very well.

We really enjoyed this. I loved all the old cars. Even my grandkids enjoyed it. We will go back for sure. So many cars and I'm afraid I didn't see all of them.
