  • Amazing collection of cars! You will not be disappointed. They even have several concept cars that were never produced.
  • Amazing collection of original concept and collector cars
  • Visited during the auto show, which is absolutely worth the trip for car enthusiasts. The Buick Auto Gallery is fairly small (about 15 vehicles) but tells the fantastic story about Buick. Some visionary cars are in this gallery, including some Harley Earl designs. Folks that work there are very helpful and talkative if approached.
  • Highly recommended for a visit if you appreciate old cars. They have some models you can crawl into. Some on display are so rare this is probably the only place you will ever see it. This place is a very fun trip back through time and educational as well.
  • This little auto history museum is a gem. Wonderful collection of older cars and associated period memorabilia and signage. Great way to spend a couple of hours.
