  • It was a madness. Middle of the USA, and it came to gubt in a Museum for old cars and a lot of nostalgia. This is a must if you drive through. Just amazing what has made the owner!

  • Great place for young and not-so-young, family oriented museum/show that has much more to offer than cars, trucks and tractor. If your on your way to the Badlands and/or the Black hills, this is a great place to stop, fuel your vehicle and your stomach. Then spend an hour exploring the many treasures of the Pioneer Auto Museum.
  • Tons of cool old stuff and really cool cars. Sadly there was several feet of snow outside so we couldn't see everything.
  • What a joy to stop and check out there museum and food is really good to! If you stop make sure you have tons of time to really enjoy!
  • Beautiful collections, wonderfully organized. We saw it on the way to the Black Hills and just had to stop on the way home. We read some reviews that were not quite as flattering, but took a chance and so glad we did! Thank you for a wonderful experience. Loved the diner and gift shop as well. If you get a chance it is worth it to stop and walk through. A car enthusiasts dream. ☺
  • The kids and I had a lot of fun here, for kids they have a scavenger hunt where you look for Clues and get stickers, it's worth taking your kids worth it for adults to see a lot of the historical Vehicles motorcycles and buildings. It's unfortunate more people do not go to places like this. We were there in the middle of the week and there was almost no customers, that made me sad. Seems like in the last 20 years a lot of places like this have closed down, I sure hope this one survives it was worth it
