  • Nice open setting for the vehicles in what was a Sunbeam bread bakery. No barriers so you can get right up to the cars. Also bikes, motorcycles and other oddities. Don at the desk was very enthusiasti...  more »

  • I've been to many car museums, and this was by far the most unique. One can only look at so many General Lee's, Batmobiles, etc. before they stop being interesting. This museum was full of cars I've n...  more »

  • The place was great full of interesting cars and tons of history. Highly recommend one of the more unique car museums with more to do than just looking at old cars. If you plan ahead you can have the opportunities to drive done of the older cars that are still in driving condition. Also I can guarantee that you cannot name 20% of the cars showcased.
  • Beautiful place! For car enthusiasts be aware of the time that you can spend here! At least 2 hours or more if you read everything carefully. Outside the museum you can enjoy the view of more cars, specifically, military vehicles. A must visit for car lovers in Nashville.
  • Jeff Lane has assembled the largest collection of European automobiles in the United States and possibly the most eclectic collection of historically significant motor vehicles in the world. More amazing still...much of the collection remains drivable today due to painstaking attention to restoration and maintenance by the museum. With pieces rotated periodically, every visit is truly a "must see" experience for all levels of interest and knowledge.
  • An absolute gem. You'll find centuries of cars, bikes and motorcycles from the epitome of the era to the futuristic never-produced. The signs make it interesting, the large warehouse is shiny spotless and temptingly displays almost the entire hoard of transport in one inviting view. Plus, the owner is a delight.
  • After doing the normal and basement tours, I can say this is the best auto museum I have ever been to. I very highly recommend going to this place on a weekend!! Thanks HondaProJason for showing me the S660 and this museum!!

Where to stay in Nashville

Stay in downtown, midtown, the west end, or near Vanderbilt to be at the center of it all in Nashville. You'll find plenty of boutique hotels and major chains in all of these areas, which give you great access to the downtown music scene and beyond. While you can find a bit of everything in downtown Nashville, from larger hotels to apartment rentals, keep in mind that more affordable, and often quainter, options are located further from Broadway. Travelers looking to spend most of their time at the Grand Ole Opry should consider accommodations in the Opryland or Music Valley area near the airport.
