Elmers Auto & Toy Museum is a must see! There are so many cars to see of all makes and models. And there are hundreds of pedal cars! Cars in rows in long sheds, pedal cars hanging out above and around - seemingly everywhere you look. The toy collection is so large that you will need time to adjust your... More

There is so much to see at Elmer's Auto and Toy Museum. Be sure to give yourself an entire morning or afternoon to see it all. There are all kinds of toys and cars, so if you have a particular love, I'm sure you'll find it there. There is no discernible organization to this museum, it is just several huge... More

There's a lot to look at and the owner was on site greeting people. Lots of old cars, bikes, scooters and peddle cars. If you are into older cars this is the place to see.

You will not believe it until you see it! Elmer's museum has more cars and pedal cars than I have ever seen in one place. All are displayed in large buildings that are easy to navigate and clean. The attendant at each building will answer any questions you have. Elmer was there to answer questions as well as his wife,... More

I was really not interested in stopping but she wanted to stop. I was pleasantly surprised with the variety and quantity of items. The highlight for me was a Daytona 500 and a Superbird, if you don't know what I'm talking about you're not a muscle car fan but this place should interest most people. There was a person in...

A great selection of old classics and future classics. Lots to see, and one heck of a view of the Mississippi! Well worth doing on a Sunday afternoon for all the family.

There is a lot of things to see here. Massive collections of old cars, motorcycles, snowmobiles, toys and dolls are located in several buildings. Each building has an assistant that is very knowledgeable about everything in the building. A lot of things to look at and comprehend in limited space. I'm pretty sure that one would find something among the... More

There's cars, motorcycles, pedal cars, bicycles, dolls, toys galore. I saw 2 complete carousels. There was a man posted in each of the car buildings offering information on the collection and answering questions. The most unusual spectacle is the car and dolls in the dining room. There's a sign on the door that says to come in. Some family members... More
