    Great place to spend a few hours reminiscing about cars (mostly very limited production) and all things Americana (who else remembers the RCA Space Commander (remote control) TV from 1959, Swanson TV ...  more »

    A small museum perhaps 20 cars but lots of memorabilia arranged around each vintage automobile in an artful & interesting way. Worth a stop if you have a couple hrs to spare just don't write a review the owner doesn't agree with. Ck out Trip Advisor. He answers every one.

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, since vintage cars are his "thing". I didn't expect to enjoy myself as much as he did! From floor to ceiling, the museum is chock full of memorabilia and just really, really cool stuff (and oh yeah, amazing cars too)! Take your time, taking it all in. The owner/curator has created masterful tableaux that provide a fascinating look back in time. His love and passion is evident in every display. We spent a good hour and a half, and learned so much from the young man (sorry we didn't get his name) whose love for, and knowledge of, the cars and memorabilia was so impressive, and added so much value to our experience (thank you!) We wished we could've stayed longer, but we'll definitely be back!

    Small but nicely displayed lifetime collection of interesting stuff.

    Fascinating museum that captures the culture behind each car, which is an angle most car museums don't address. Plus, the owner is super nice and full of great facts.

    Even better than expected. An obvious labor of love to pull together a place that goes well beyond displaying amazing cars, but brings back memories of how life was for anyone born 1930-1970's. Like stepping back in time. Loved hearing details about the various items from Kerry and reading the story boards. My husband and I were in town for another event and visiting the museum turned out to be the highlight of our weekend.
