  • Walked up the hill from our harbor hotel to visit the museum, well worth the trip. Beautiful cars, many from another era.  more »
  • This museum is close to the Tennis Hall of Fame and the mansions, and as I understand it rotates their displays. The current one just opened, and is not to be missed.  more »
  • Dropped in to Audrain on a charity gala night. Very enjoyable. The range of cars changes all the time, some amazing vehicles  more »

  • Great place to visit and see some beautiful pieces of automobile history. Every car lover should stop by and take a look. Prices are reasonable for the collection you get to see.
  • We found this to be an unexpected addition to the historic landscape of Newport. Handsome, well suited gallery space with immaculate presentation, apropos to the mission of sharing and celebrating each automotive “soul” in the collection. Inspiring telltale quotes which are a window into the minds of visionaries who made dreams into reality. We came within inches of car fantasies held since younger years. Best part ~ it's like seeing a brand new “wing” of the museum every time the multiple exhibits rotate. Thank you to the owners who are preserving automobile history and sharing their treasure with us!
  • Good to see that the millions that Nick Schorsch stole from investors went to a good cause - himself - buying hundreds of cars - and charging $15 to look at ten of them, which you can do for free by looking through the window. Another Schorsch scam.
  • Great cars and people. Events are exciting and plentiful. Best car club ever!
  • Astounding collection of cars. It was late 1800's/early 1900's when we went to visit but the collection is regularly changing. Very well thought out use of tablets to present facts about the cars, beautiful space that's not too crowded and let people truly enjoy the beautiful cars from all angles. Cars were maintained in an unbelievable beauty, with mirror-shine brass and chrome elements that truly gave those old timers justice. An unassuming, very pleasant surprise just a walk away from Newport's mansions.
