  • If you're a car lover this is a must see. Even if you're not you will be impressed with the "art" of the automobiles displayed over 3 floors. It is almost a mini-history lesson in the automobile with ...  more »

  • Visited the museum today, was last here in 2013. Yes there are less cars than before, probably down 60% and only on one floor now, but still an impressive display of some very unique classic vehicles. Good value for $15. The Alfa BAT cars are missing but I was told they are currently being restored and will be back 22nd October.
  • Pure car porn. It's hard to imagine more beautiful cars presented any better than this. I lucked out on an awesome docent tour, full of information and trivia.
  • Where did the cars go? Went to Blackhawk today to look at the car collection discovered that about two thirds of the collection has been "returned to the owners". The one floor of cars remaining shares its space with what appears to be cafeteria tables occupying about one third of that floor. The second floor has no cars and has been replaced with cowboy and Indian stuff. Some of it is totally pathetic, dime store plastic cowboys and Indians set up in a battle diorama. There is also a large collection of stuffed animals too, bears wolves etc. To be fair there are also old military uniforms and old pieces of barbed wire on display which would look perfectly at home up in the Gold Country. If your looking for cars go elsewhere the current collection is very thin and hardly justifies the $15 admission. I think the museum's name should be changed to the Blackhawk Cowboy and Car Collection
  • FANTASTIC experience! The cars are displayed like fine jewelry. I have been to many of the top automotive museums in the US and Blackhawk is in the top three easily...not a huge number of cars but they all are the best of the best. I'm a Jaguar guy...they have an E Type factory light weight racer...just a handful were ever produced and they have one here...same goes for a Jaguar XKSS. Beautiful cars in a beautiful building...GO...you won't be disappointed! ...and make sure you visit the gift shop...if your into diecast models your going to need your credit card! The young man at the gift shop is GREAT as well!
  • This is one of the classiest automobile museums that anyone could ever visit. This museum has one of a kind automobiles and a great atmosphere. I would recommend the Blackhawk for any organizational functions, as it will be a treat to any employee.
