I’m not really a car enthusiast, but this is definitely worth a visit. Several of the cars are the only ones still in existence, and there are lots of interesting prototype cars that never made it to production. Someone who is really into this will...More

Take the time and visit this place. Make sure you watch the movie and slowly enjoy the many rooms filled with pristine collection of well restored and kept up autos from the late 1800 thru the mid 1900. A must to stop

I've visited the museum several times beginning in the 1990's, and my son and I visited again recently. It's very impressive, sure to entertain just about anyone with the gorgeous collection of restored antique automobiles. Some date back to the 1890's! The cars appear to...More
