Great museum, even the kids were entertained with a scavenger hunt. Loved the extra stories from the attendant. Spent about 1.5 hours wandering slowly. The kids got done faster in about an hour.
Huge variety of old cars. Very knowledgeable staff and they keep the cars very very clean. Definitely worth checking out. I'm not even a big car person and I thought it was fantastic.
This was a fantastic and amazing display of vehicles. Each vehicle has a fairly broad information plack. Quite a few quite rare vehicles. I could have easily spent all day there. Very informative and interesting.
Loved this museum. There are many little-known brands, and there are no chains around 90% of the cars so you can walk 360° around them. Staffer Tom filled us in on the background of some of the cars and could not have been nicer. Also features recreations of a barn find setting and a 1930s service station, as well as vintage tools, parts, carriages, and bicycles. Definitely worth a stop if you especially enjoy early cars (1900 through the 30s mostly, with a small number of 40s-50s cars). No muscle cars, though. Most cars are in original, untouched condition, and almost all the cars are in running condition (and they drive them!).
