Unless we had the wrong location, there does not seem be an actual museum. There is one car in the hotel lobby - beautiful condition - but nothing else. We asked the staff and they had no idea what we were talking about.

The Stanley Steamer on view is quite interesting. Well maintained although we would have appreciated more information on Stanley's history of building it and how it actually works.

The Haunted tour was a mini history lesson not only of Este Park park but also the hotel and the Stanley's. Very spoky Room 217.

There is one steam car in the lobby and one that you see on a paid tour. That's it. Not sure why there is a listing for this attraction.

This was a great tour and we learned a lot about the history of the property! Our tour guide D was a lot of fun ! She also kept the young kids engaged, which made the tour fun for them too!

While my knowledge of the hotel was based on the Kubrick movie, it was very cool to learn about the greater historical significance of the owner and his cars.

The "museum" is in the lobby of the Stanley Hotel. One car is presented. Had to pay $10 parking fee (half of it was redeemed if you ate at the cafe).
