  • Better than expected. I’ve driven by this place on I-75 for years and honestly it doesn’t look like much from the highway. We spent a very enjoyable day there. It’s an impressive collection with so much more than just race cars. Friendly and knowledgeable staff will answer as many questions as you have. I would have liked to be able to walk all the way around more of the vehicles but with such a large collection there is not enough space.
  • If you are drag racing cars lover, this is the place for you! You can see the history of the championships and its champions. How are the motors and its specials characteristics that made unique. And you find fabulous classics cars. The staff is very very friendly and helpful. Photography is welcome!
  • Very cool. Classic cars and race cars aren't my thing but I was involved and engaged with everything and just wanted to learn more. We were there about 2 hours, it was a good time.
  • I grew up a fan of “Big Daddy” and I couldn’t pass up the chance to see his museum. Before I toured his museum obviously I had great respect for his career, and innovations on the strip. But I left an even bigger fan, I’m really in awe of this man’s foresight to keep even the smallest details of drag racing history – really a national treasure. If you love racing, love classic cars, this is a must stop unbelievable collection!
  • What a great place to visit. Really nice people, the cars in both collections were just amazing. Very clean and easy to get around. Could make it a little more wheelchair accessible but other than that awesome. We loved it from the littlest at age 7 to "papa" at 70
