  • Hartford produced cars and trucks, including during WW I, inthe tens of thousands until 1931 and less than 150 known examples exist today! There are 25 of the Kissel Kar in this museum and over 110 ve...  more »
  • Great place to visit, worlds largest collection of Kissel cars. Nice railroad display as well, with a large operable steam locomotive.

  • This museum is very charming. While the name of it may derive your impression on it, it's not just vintage cars they own. There's also a diner, a plane hanging from the ceiling on the second floor, and my personal favorite, train exhibits, which includes a Lionel layout and Soo Line 1003, one of only 10 mainline steam locomotives left in the United States. As for the cars, it ranges from Ford's, Chevrolets, etc. etc. If you like transportation, this is worth at least one visit.
  • Such a great hidden jem. We learned so much about Wisconsin made cars
  • Pretty cool, had cars from Wisconsin i had never even heard of. The locomotive engine is awesome as well. For ten bucks you can't go wrong
  • The Hartford Auto Museum is a hidden gem. If you are an auto enthusiast you have to check it out. They have the best display of Kissel autos that you will every find. Kissel was one of the finest autos ever produced and it cool that they were built right here in Hartford Wisconsin a mile from the Museum. Among the Kissels they have many other great cars on display, many beautiful Nash autos. The staff is great with folks in the museum to answer questions and share with you the history of Kissel. I highly recommend it to everyone even if you are not an auto enthusiast. It is a great display of the history of automotive transportation in America.
  • Great museum! Have taken my Red Hat ladies and my grandchildren and daughter there. The history of the cars was so interesting. Elevator is nice for those that can't do stairs.
