  • Hubby is a car aficionado so we had to visit. There are about 150 cars inside, many of which are one-of-a-kind and super rare. This includes the smallest car ever made, the Peel, to a Lamborghini...

  • Very interesting automotive history museum of unique cars; most of which were not mass produced. It wasn’t what I was expecting but I’m sure it is good for many. Certainly unique. Lots of bizarre...

  • This is one of the best museums I've been to in a long time. I haven't always been into cars or automotive, but I couldn't stop smiling in this museum. I love seeing the classic cars, especially the limited production makes and models. The cars from the Highway Aircraft Association really stood out to me. This is a motor museum, so they also have Aircraft and Motorcycles and Lightweight Experimental cars and bikes, so I really enjoyed that aspect of it as well. Check out the middle-seat drivers, vans that look like airplanes, and other really cool exhibits! There are also some display cases and archives, but we didn't have time to go through the archives this time. There's even a truck with a S-10 engine that was made to look like a Hot Wheels Toolbox! I enjoyed every part of this museum. We were visiting family in Nashville and looking for things to do, and this was the perfect idea. We had a really good time! Thanks! 5 Stars, you should come check this out!
  • Good clean fun! Play area will keep the kids safely occupied for a long time. An incredible, charming combination of beautiful, rare, unusual, and genuinely ill-advised vehicles. And only $12 per adult with kids 5 and under completely free. We killed an hour and a half and loved it. The bike section is amazing too! I honestly hope to return one day when my kids are older.
  • I have seen features on television about this place and didn't realize it was the same museum. I am thrilled that we decided to visit. Such a great attraction and awesome vehicles that the average car show person has never experienced. This will be a must see again if I ever get back to Nashville. Definitely carve out 3+ hours if you enjoy autos and maybe an hour if you're not really into them, but a must see if you visit Nashville. The admission to the museum is reasonable and will be the best money spent while you're in town. I'm in awe and loved everything about this place. If I lived in Nashville I'd either find a way to work there or visit on a regular basis.
  • This place is amazing. I've been in the automotive service industry over 36 years and my son suprised me today with us showing up at the museum. I just moved my son out here from North Carolina it was great walking around and seeing all those amazing vehicles and talking car talk with my son. It is well worth the extra money to take the tour of the vehicles they have in the basement. This building was a bread factory for years and then they turned into an amazing transportation exhibition of all kinds of stuff. The young man that gave the guided tour was very knowledgeable about the vehicles they had downstairs. They even have vehicles down there are for sale.
  • Worth seeing, this place is a hidden gem for motor and engineering enthusiast. The owner started this project in the 90's. The museum has card from all over the world during the technology and industrial boom. So there's great history and cool vehicles to see. If it has wheels he has it or is getting it. Family friendly, parking is free, and they give Military discounts.
