    Amazing amazing place. I would recommend to any real car historian. Very knowledgeable and amazing stories. The guide even took me after the tour and showed me an amazing part of car history that was found under someone's swimming pool! I came from Montreal blindly to buffalo but would return JUST for these cars and this amazing staff. I wish I had gotten the guides name but if you get a short lady with black curly hair you are in luck!

    10 Stars! It's an incredible showcase of amazing cars built in Buffalo, with thousands of automobile memorabilia. We were mesmerized. The new addition housing the Frank Lloyd Wright gas station is amazing, and this is a must see. Hours are seasonal, 11-4 Saturday and Sunday during the winter. Admission is $10 adults $5 16 and under. Bring your camera, and bring a kid so they know the history of our city.

    Really neat place, had a nice time learning about the history and viewing some nice classic cars. Well worth the price of admission (~$10)
