If you enjoy history, you must visit. The museum gave a great overview of the American experience over the last several hundred years. It helped history come alive. It showed the march of inventions both big and small as they improved our lives.

He is a big car buff so we spent hours looking at all the cars. Enjoyed taking a coffee and apple pie break at the diner inside the museum. Great way to spend a hot summer day.
