  • They had some awesome cars and boats! The fire engine was so cool.
  • Free and something to do when you're walking around the beautiful town of Oakland
  • This museum denotes the modes of transportation throughout the years from boats to cars to trains and is very well done the displays are thoughtful. It has 2 levels and is easily accessible by stairs or elevator. The Packard 160 on display is immaculate you will not be disappointed. This is not just a car museum. There's so much more to see the memorabilia are something to see in itself.
  • Nice little museum, some really cool antique cars
  • Amazing historical items on exhibit. There is a 1916 Ford Model T, a crank-start fire truck that still runs, a beautiful model of the old Oakland train station and tons more. My 2 year old enjoyed it as much as my Mother. Really a great stop when it's too hot or rainy to enjoy the outdoors in Oakland or Deep Creek, Md.
