We like old cars and have been too many museums, but this was cool because it was better laid out without too many of the same cars. Nice displays and you didn't feel like you were overwhelmed even though they have tons of cars. I...More

A great array of vintage cars, some very rare. The place is neatly laid out with dioramas for the vehicles in their setting. Much information displayed about each vehicle and the history. The cars are wonderfully restored. Some look brand new. Great photo opportunities too.

My husband and I are not fans of "classic" automobiles, but we absolutely loved this museum. So much variety and unique things to see. Really do recommend it.

Spent several hours at the museum with out of town friends. Had never been here before. Exhibits of rare and unusual motor vehicles is best I've ever seen. Staff is friendly and helpful. Get the audio self tour, it really adds to the experience.

Everyone should experience this world famous museum. Even people that are reluctant to see "bunch of old cars" will walk away enthusiastic. Easy parking and allow lots of time, at least two hours.

If you're at all interested in cars and automotive history, this museum is a must-see. The museum houses numerous historic automobiles: all are in immaculate condition and are handsomely presented. Everything from the Beatnik Bandit to the winner of the New York to Paris race...More

Our experience was unexpected! I should have figured out that it will be a huge gallery because it's a national museum, but even if I did, I would still be blown away. I'm not an automobile/car enthusiast, but I loved the place! When you go...More

Very enjoyable...fabulous cars. Pre 1900's on up. They also have "space" activities kids may participate in. Recommend the tour. You can spend an hour to hours in this museum, depending on your level of interest in history/cars.
