  • Just a short drive from Denver, the Cussler is a worthwhile excursion for classic car enthusiasts. There are about 75 beautifully restored cars on display from the family‚Äôs collection. The museum is o...  more »
  • Really interesting display of antique cars. Went with my dad who is a huge Cussler fan. We all really enjoyed it and can't wait until next year's display. 
  • The Cussler museum was very clean and nicely laid out with wide aisles for pushing wheelchairs or strollers. The stories about the cars, author, and books are short but interesting tidbits. I don't re...  more »

  • Awesome collection of classic cars. I'd wanted to visit after reading most of Clive Cussler's books.
  • Awesome museum! Highly recommended! One of the best rare car collections in the Rocky Mountain region!
  • Spent a wonderful day here, with my husband, sister, niece, and great nephews. No one was "bored". A wonderful collection of amazing vehicles!
  • What a collection! I have seen many cars but this rivals the best grouping of impressive cars anywhere. Rare, amazing, in excellent condition. Thank you for sharing these works of beauty. - BalesTeam
  • The collection in this museum is absolutely awesome. This is one of the hidden gems of the Denver area. I have been to many auto museums and they usually have some interesting pieces, but this is chock full of them. From the Detroit classics of the 50-s and 60-s (including my favorite 58 Buick) to true classics including Duesenberg, Auburn, Bentley and of course Mercedes and a Ford T, it is a breathtaking collection. A true must for every classic car buff! Entry fee is reasonable for the level of collection ($7). On the minus side, the collection is not huge - there may be about 50 cars total - but the quality on every piece is just outstanding, pristine vehicles, all of them in running condition, including the Stanley Steamer. Also a little minus is that the space is cramped so you can't get get a 360 view of many vehicles, you can't walk up to their sides or backs. But at least you get close. Service is nice, if the engineer doing the restoration is around he will talk to you about the cars, he is knowledgeable and very nice. I gave service a very good only because there are limited features in the museum, no snack bar or gift shop, but the people are very nice. As for kids, well, I would never think of trying to organize a birthday party at an auto museum, and I'm sure they won't let kids touch the vehicles. But for an adult who loves classics, this is heaven. A truly incredible collection!
