  • Interesting display of historical vehicles & trains. Could have been "cooler/trendier/hipper" but was satisfied with the level of information provided. Suffice it to say, there's as much to see as their is potential to make it interesting enough to want to learn more about.
  • Cool quick museum... Listen have lyft meetings here
  • The museum has an incredible amount of rare and unique vehicles. We got a tour I would highly recommend it. A truly phenomenal museum.
  • A small simple museum. Of course it isn't the size of the Museum of Nature and Science, but it shouldn't have to be. It's perfect to jump in, visit, and move on to other great sights. Great visual education!
  • If you are into cars .... model cars .. its fun.
