  • Excellent museum of old cars, it is very tidy and the cars are in perfect condition, they have a great collection. Spend a day exploring some of the best examples in automobile history.  more »
  • we really liked the museum. It’s better to arrive early, then there are fewer people and you can take cool photos without a crowd. Beautiful and rare cars)  more »

  • Beautiful and classy. The cars are amazing! If you are a car lover, piano, organ, or even a music box lover, then this is the place for you! Top it off with the classic look of the ball room (for the cars) and curved staircases, it's brings back the old Hollywood/historical feel. I love this place! Have been bringing back people so that this kind of venue can continue to be appreciated. Thank you for a wonderful time!
  • This is a beautiful place. They have a large collection of vehicles from the 20s and 30s. They also have a large collection of spark plugs, hood ornaments, brochures, awards, lights and their own library. The staff is fantastic, always willing to answer questions. Take the time to go through the train and check out some beautiful interiors, you are also allowed to enter the engine. Free parking and free entrance, just be sure make reservations for the tour across the street. Plan ahead for that.
  • Incredible automobiles and the beautiful train! The people working there were also very personable and friendly. You have to see the 1930s Packard Cormorant hood ornaments that also doubled as the radio antennas!
  • This place is beautiful. The beautiful antiques amazing cars the stories of the amazing equipment that they have there👍
  • I had not heard of this place before. I just googled things to do near me. This came up as one of the things. It is absolutely amazing. My nine-year-old son and I had an amazing time. So many incredible cars and other things to see. A super cool classic train that we took a tour of. There are other things too that we didn’t do, but I have to say this place is great and surprisingly it’s FREE!
