  • My husband and I visited the museum. He is more into cars than I am but I found it interesting. The place is a little out of the way but our Uber driver knew where he was going

  • 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!
  • Great museum with a wonderful rotating selection of transportation related exhibits. It's a must see for anyone that appreciates mechanical wonders!
  • Really beautiful cars, love the old bicycles and the huge, huge locomotive!
