Great history lesson in real cars of the development of the auto industry. I didn't know there were so many manufacturers in the early days. And such magnificent cars. In excellent condition. Great way to spend a few hours

This place is awesome. Talk about a blast from the past. There is a little bit of something for everyone here. I could spend a whole day in this place and still not see everything

I loved the gorgeous cars. Follow the "halls" in order/chronologically. I thin the docent tour is for real car nerds. He has all the history etc. Great collection.

I had work meetings all day so my husband was on his own for the day. He spent a big chunk of the day at the museum. He absolutely loved it!

We're fans of some of the older cars, whose designs were amazing. This museum has several hundred cars on display, and they are incredibly well maintained, and/or restored. They could have just come from being built. The ~30 minute movie was probably not the best...More
