  • So many things to see and learn. Very polite staff.
  • Amazing collection of cars! You will not be disappointed. They even have several concept cars that were never produced.
  • Very nice time looking at the old classic 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.
