Great day for car guys and the kids. Unusual museum in that the cars are in diarama layouts. The Alpha collection is great and extensive. Once a month they race a couple of cars in the parking lot. Great fun!!

This is a a somewhat hidden gem and definitely a must for classic car or race car lovers. I am not a car lover but was there for a dinner and was lucky enough to tour the wonderful collection of old classic racing cars.
