This is a very interesting attraction that many locals have not been to. Their loss as it's so well maintained and full of historical exhibits. Easy parking and guided tours. Recommended.

My husband, son and grandson love all the old vehicles. Plenty to see if that is your interest. Would be even better if people allowed on more of the exhibits.
