    I lived here for years but never thought Swope's Car Museum would be worth the time to stop in. I was wrong. There were many more cars than I expected, they and the facility sparkled and the two staff...  more »

    Better than I could have imagined. Model A , Model T Fords, Packards, Rolls Royse, and many more. Curator there was great, and it is all free. A must stop if you like vintage automobiles.  more »

    This is a very unique place and worth a stop if you are traveling down I65 or in Elizabethtown for any reason. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and welcoming. We have toured with small children and as a group of adults. It is really an amazing collection of cars and something pretty special. You do not have to spend a long time there to learn and see a lot of amazing history. I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did and definitely think it is worth a visit!

    To think that Mr. Swope has collected so many classic and antique cars over his lifetime AND employ staff that are not only knowledgeable of the vehicles, but also the back story on every one of them is priceless! Oh, speaking of price, it's FREE!! Sitting right between 2 Swope new car dealerships and always open until 5pm weekdays.

    Visited last month the cars look amazing! The tour was perfect! I think the lady's name is Shannon. I'm not completely sure, but you could instantly tell she not only loves her job, but she loves the cars too. She treated my family, boyfriend and I like we were family friends. She took the time to tell us about the history about each car. She really is an asset to the museum and she'll definitely be the reason I visit again. There was also a man named Zachariah that works there. He was quiet but really friendly lol.
