  • 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.
  • Never tire of looking at the historical automobiles
  • Excellent resource for Buick heritage and history. Factory archives for each model year are available for anyone wishing to research a particular Buick model. I was able to copy numerous mechanical drawings & specifications for my 1960 Invicta convertible. Displayed vehicles are rotated and can range from early 1900's through the 1980's. At times they have concept cars on display like the original Riviera Silver Arrow. Cars can be viewed up close and personal. Typically not very crowded because the collection is housed separately from the Sloan Museum. Lots of opportunity to enjoy the collection at your leisure. Other automotive-related period artifacts on display as well. A true joy for anyone dedicated to Buick Motor Division products. Doubt you would find a more comprehensive collection anywhere else.
