  • This is off the beaten path but close to downtown. I'm not a car enthusiast but It was fascinating. One of the most interesting collections of vehicles (because it's not just cars) you will ever hope ...  more »

  • Fantastic museum with plenty to discover. There are plenty of signs posted to provide background information on the displays and even some videos in certain areas. Standing next to that gigantic amphibious vehicle and the smallest production car ever made in the same day was a unique and memorable experience.
  • Worth a visit if you are an auto fan beyond US cars. The have mostly European cars and some special exhibits from time to time. Very well prepared signs with plenty of information for each car. Check out the Tatras, largest collection (they claim) outside of the Czech Republic.
  • Fun way to spend the afternoon, Lots of obscure cars from lesser known countries
  • Awesome museum to spend an afternoon in. Not only does it house some truly unique cars, but also motorcycles, bicycles, planes, and more vehicles that are in categories of their own.
  • This place was really amazing. I saw a few photos and decided to attend but it was bigger than I expected and full of variety. From the 1-wheel McLean to this huge military vehicle outside, the variety of unusual cars is quite vast. They let you take photographs but don't touch any of the vehicles for good reason
