The mirrored walls of the Tallahassee Automobile Museum enclose more than just automobiles! This 100,000 sf. facility houses cars, trucks and memorabilia of all kinds. In addition to the antique cars, muscle cars, concept cars, and trucks -- check out the eclectic collection of Steinway pianos, Remington sculptures, Case knives, Barbie dolls, boats, boat motors, children's pedal cars, and die-cast toys. Journey through history with Native American artifacts, firearms, antique cash registers, pocket watches, salt-cellars, baby bottles, silver spoons, baseball cards, antique golf balls and clubs, 100-year-old brass-bladed fans, art objects from Thailand, neon signs, stained glass, a horse from a carousel, a children's barber chair shaped like an airplane and much, much more. Part shrine, part history lesson, part pack-rat's paradise, part garage and part art gallery -- except, in this case, the art has four spotless wheels and can go from 0 to 60 faster than a Cezanne can. It's truly an amazing museum of American history.

I'm new to Tallahassee and had family in town, so we decided to to give the antique car museum a tour. We really enjoyed our visit! Awesome collection of cars! The cars shined like they had just rolled off the assembly line! Lots of detail and love in this collection!

This place has it all!! Cars, boats, motorcycles, collectibles of all sorts! Batmobiles galore! This collection is one (very rich) man's lifetime of collecting on display for all to see and admire. No cost spared on these restorations, and it shows. If you want to see things you've never seen before, this is the place.

We all enjoyed this museum. Great collection of cars, Case knives, golf items, fishing, pianos, etc. If you have an interest in any of these items it's a must see. Also has great American memorabilia that is enjoyable to look at. Our 7 and 9 year olds enjoyed it. We were there 3 hours and could have stayed longer to... More

Big and spacious and filled with cars, toy trains, etc. some things are neat, but the place is disorganized, dirty, and unmarked. Most of it is as fun as walking through an indoor parking lot. My kids and I were quickly bored. For car lovers only.

After recently moving to the area my husband and I were looking for something to do on a hot Sunday afternoon. we're both car "guys" so this appealed to us.

I was amazed at the number of automobiles both foreign and U.S. made housed in this facility. All are well displayed and range from a Delorean to an I Setta (I hadn't seen one of those in over 50 years!). Many antique cars and curiosities such as a Bat Mobile! I spent much more time there than expected.

The owner has put a lot of time into this collection. There is a lot to see with some very impressive pieces. Be sure to ask the staff questions to get some real insight on the museum!
