Hidden gem of a museum, small but very comfortable, lots of KC automotive history and a nice assortment of race cars and everyday cars, old and up to the 70s, check before going to see if they have a special display happening.

Unless you know it is there, you will miss it. The small museum is packed with automobiles ranging from solar-powered collegiate vehicles to antiques and California customs. It is accessible for handicapped visitors as well as those who just want to get an up-close look.

Small but with some very unique vehicles. Not crowded at all but there are some really quality vehicles. A place you can take your time and enjoy. Could go through it in a half hour or so.

Its a bit small but that is also good as you can really check out each car and they rotate what they have on display so it changes. I was surprised how much the cars varied and the staff was so nice and could spend...More

The greater KC area finally has a world-class museum of automotive history. Not just a "car museum" with multiple vehicles, this one displays old cars along with great info about their place in local history. Unlike similar museums, this one is constantly changing, as the...More
